UK, EU strike new Northern Ireland post-Brexit trade deal

The United Kingdom and the European Union have struck a new post-Brexit deal aimed at resolving their long-running trade dispute over Northern Ireland.
The agreement came after high-level talks on Monday in Windsor, England, between British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission, EU and UK government sources confirmed.
The deal seeks to resolve tensions caused by the 2020 post-Brexit arrangements governing Northern Ireland, a British province, and its open border with EU member state Ireland.
It remains to be seen, though, whether it will go far enough to end the political deadlock in Northern Ireland and satisfy critics in Britain and the province.
Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party has boycotted the region’s power-sharing government until the trade arrangements are substantially changed, shaking its decades-old peace process.
