The Taoiseach says trust has been "eroded" over the UK's government's move to override key parts of the Withdrawal Agreement, and says he's pessimistic about a trade deal being reached.

Micheal Martin's comments come after Britsh Prime Minister Boris Johnson published proposed legislation to change key elements of the Brexit deal regarding Northern Ireland.

High-ranking officials from the EU Commission and the British government are meeting in London today to discuss the issu.

The Taoiseach and the British Prime Minister held what's being described as a "forthright" discussion on the issue last night.

Micheál Martin says the UK government needs to restore trust:

“I did make the point that trust has been eroded by the manner in which this happened, the unilateral nature of this – no heads up to anybody.

“So, trust has been damaged and I think there is a huge obligation now on the UK Government to restore that trust and to demonstrate that to EU negotiators and restore bona fides in relation to the overall Brexit negotiations.”

“Actions speak louder than words”
