Sweden welcomes deal on the issue of the Northern Ireland Protocol


Sweden warmly welcomes today’s announcement that a deal has been reached between the European Commission and the Government of the United Kingdom on the issue of the Northern Ireland Protocol. We congratulate President von der Leyen and Prime Minister Sunak and their respective teams on this important achievement.

Now is the moment to inject further stability and predictability in the EU-UK relationship in the interest of both sides and for the benefit of people and businesses in Northern Ireland.

As the holder of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Sweden is committed to advancing this work with EU Member States without delay so that a final agreement can be reached as soon as possible.
