Monday 13 June:

  • United Kingdom: The UK government is set to present its Northern Ireland Protocol bill that will seek to disapply certain sections of the protocol under the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement. The government has stated that the legislation is required in order to ensure the proper operation of the Withdrawal Agreement, arguing that the protocol in its current form is not working properly, and to protect the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement. EU states that the UK government will be in breach of international law if the bill goes through and is implemented. EU-UK relations remain in the doldrums and there appears little prospect of a significant improvement.
  • United States: Second public hearing of the House of Representatives committee investigation the 6 Jan riots at US Capitol. This session is aimed at showing that "Trump engaged in a massive effort to spread false and fraudulent information".
