PARIS, July 22 (Reuters) – French Europe minister Clement Beaune rejected on Thursday Britain’s request to renegotiate the Brexit deal governing trade with Northern Ireland, dismissing British accusations of European dogmatism as a “tall tale”.

“How could we renegotiate with a partner that cannot respect its own commitments?” Beaune told Reuters.
