Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney has accused British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss of making “no effort” to resolve the Northern Ireland P rotocol row and suggested she may be more focused on trying to succeed Boris Johnson as p rime m inister.

In some of his most critical remarks to date, Mr Coveney said the British government “isn't listening to anybody except themselves” and had made no attempt to seek a compromise in the long-running row over post-Brexit trading arrangements for the North since the last formal negotiations with the EU in February.
