The Foreign Secretary will host European Commission vicepresident Maros Sefcovic at Chevening House in Kent for two days of talks from next Thursday. Her aim is to end the row over the province in order to reset wider EU-UK relations – but Ms Truss is expected to insist that Article 16 remains on the table unless progress is made.

Brussels has warned it could rip up the Brexit trade pact if Article 16 is triggered. Foreign Office source said that Ms Truss is determined to find a “fair, proportionate and durable solution that solves problems and protects the Good Friday agreement”.
