BRUSSELS – France’s European affairs minister Clement Beaune urged Britain on Tuesday to uphold its side of post-Brexit deals and restore trust.

Beaune said Britain was not properly applying the fisheries part of the EU-UK trade deal or the protocol governing the trading position of Northern Ireland.

“You cannot say that you will uphold the things that suit you and drop those that do not suit the British. So trust, consistency, respect of accords are, I think, essential… but unfortunately are not always there,” he told reporters before a meeting of EU counterparts in Brussels.
