SINN Féin’s Elisha McCallion has said it is clear the EU is standing fully behind the Good Friday Agreement.
The Foyle MP said: “Once again British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has heard loud and clear from the EU that the backstop which he voted for is not up for renegotiation.
“French President Emmanuel Macron was unambiguous on that point, and that is the message coming from everyone in the EU.
“No amount of spin from Westminster is going to change that.
“The EU is standing behind the people of the north and the Good Friday Agreement.
“It is time the British government, who have a legal responsibility to do so, did the same.”
