British PM Boris Johnson has leveled accusations against the European Union of threatening to impose a food blockade between Britain and Northern Ireland unless the bloc’s terms for a future relationship were agreed.

Earlier this week, Johnson’s government said it was mulling to break international law by breaching part of the “Brexit Withdrawal Agreement”, adding it required a new legislation to safeguard free trade between the four constituent nations of the United Kingdom.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph newspaper, Johnson said he had become “anxious” that the EU might have misunderstood the terms of the Brexit divorce deal.
