The impact of Britain’s departure from the European Union means Luxembourg will need to open an embassy in the Republic of Ireland, according to opposition leader Claude Wiseler.
In a parliamentary question, the CSV MP explains that Ireland is currently served by a Luxembourg embassy in London with only a consulate based in Dublin.
“After Brexit, Luxembourg will be serving an EU member state from a non-EU member state, which could pose political, diplomatic and consular problems,” he writes.
Wiseler asks whether now would be a good time to open a Luxembourg embassy in Dublin with an ambassador in residence and if such a move is planned.
The Republic of Ireland is the only EU member state to share a land border with the UK. It is expected to be most affected by Brexit, particularly as talks on stopping a hard border with customs posts this week stalled.
