89.The payment of these amounts does not depend on the successful conclusion of negotiations on the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Once the UK and THE EU have concluded the agreement in accordance with Article 50 of the TUE, the UK`s financial obligations will prove to be obligations under international law, regardless of the outcome of future negotiations. The Court of Justice itself does not apply EU law to a dispute raised by a referring court, its role being to contribute to the resolution of that right; The role of the national court is to draw conclusions from the judgment of the Court of Justice. You will remember this when the ECJ decided in December 2018 that the UK could unilaterally decide to stay in the EU and withdraw its `Article 50 communication`. The Court of Justice has only ruled on how to interpret a mud in EU law and not on what should be done (as we all know, the UK has not withdrawn its communication on Article 50). This means that the role of the European Court of Justice in resolving disputes in a future trade agreement will likely depend on the importance of EU law in this trade agreement. 68 The Withdrawal Treaty (December 19, 2019), Article 30-36. Article 33 is a new provision that would extend the articles of cooperation in social security to Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, provided that each of these countries has a similar agreement with the United Kingdom and the EU. The «declarant» published by the UK Government notes that agreements on citizens` rights and a small number of separation issues are also negotiated by the United Kingdom with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein (see the agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union). On 15 November 2018, the day after the agreement and the support of the British government were presented, several members of the government resigned, including Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for leaving the European Union.  «Any future free trade agreement, if we sign it, who would be the arbiter of disputes? Can I tell you? The European Court of Justice, which will make binding decisions, says this in the document. Article 184 obliges both the UK and the EU to «do their best» to implement the terms of the Political Declaration (PD), which are practically the rulers of the conditions that would form the basis of a future trade agreement between the UK and the EU.
The Northern Ireland Protocol, known as the Irish Backstop, was an annex to the November 2018 draft agreement outlining provisions to avoid a hard border in Ireland after the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union. The protocol provided for a provision of the safety net to deal with the circumstances in which satisfactory alternative arrangements were to come into force at the end of the transition period.
