The European Commission has ruled out renegotiating the deal.

Britain and the EU will hold talks on the Northern Ireland Protocol in September, according to an Irish MEP.

It's after the UK yesterday called for significant changes to the agreement - saying it's causing major problems for trade.

But the European Commission immediately ruled out renegotiating the deal.

Fine Gael MEP Frances Fitzgerald believes both sides will hold talks after the summer break.

While another Irish MEP says there’s been a catalogue of bad faith from the UK side on the Northern Ireland protocol.

Speaking on Thursday afternoon, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen insists the Brexit protocol on Northern Ireland will not be renegotiated.

She made the comments after speaking to the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson today.

They discussed the British Command paper on the protocol, which is aimed at dealing with difficulties in the trade of goods between Britain and the North.

Ms von der Leyen says the EU will continue to be creative and flexible within the Protocol framework.
