In an interview with CNN on Sunday, British Prime Minister Liz Truss stated that she is looking for a negotiated resolution with the European Union to ease the tensions around the Northern Ireland protocol.
As a member of parliament, Truss introduced legislation to dissolve the Northern Ireland protocol, which was created to keep the peace in the area after Brexit. In their first face-to-face meeting on Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden and Prime Minister David Cameron emphasized the dangers of upsetting the peace in Northern Ireland.
The positions of both the nationalist and unionist communities in Northern Ireland must be respected and protected, according to Truss, who stated this on Sunday.
Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, which has reopened discussions about whether the countries should sever relations with the British monarchy, Truss is also dealing with escalating tensions from Commonwealth countries all over the world.
Truss expressed her support for the Commonwealth and claimed to have witnessed a “outpouring of love and affection” for the late Queen.
I believe the Commonwealth is a positive force, she declared. “It’s a supporter of freedom and democracy, and in a world where we are dealing with these authoritarian regimes that want to undermine those values, we need more of it,”
