The British press announced that the UK and the European Union made a customs agreement after Brexit, in which Brussels made an important concession on the European Court of Justice.
After months of tensions between London, Brussels, Belfast and Dublin, progress has been made recently in the dispute over the Northern Ireland Protocol.
According to the British newspaper The Times, the European Union (EU) has adopted a plan that will eliminate the need for routine checks on products going to Northern Ireland.
The EU Court of Justice will only be able to rule on Northern Ireland matters if a case is referred by the courts in the province, but the tribunal's precise role has yet to be determined.
The Times said both sides were discussing the details of the deal.
