LONDON (Reuters) - Negotiations between Britain and the European Union were conducted in a constructive spirit and London is working hard to secure a deal, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday.
He also told reporters Britain was committed to working through the joint committee, which brings together both sides, to find a solution to the Northern Ireland protocol, which Britain says it will breach - in violation of international law - if the two sides fail to agree a wider deal.
“Discussions are carrying on today and I think they have been conducted in a constructive spirit and we certainly are committed to continuing to work constructively to seek to reach an agreement,” the spokesman said.
