RECALLING the commitments made by the Union and the United Kingdom in the joint report of the negotiators of the European Union and the Government of the United Kingdom on the progress made during Phase 1 of the negotiations provided for in Article 50 of the Teu on the orderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union of 8 December 2017, the arbitration panel may decide not to hold consultation in agreement with the parties. It requires that clauses 42 and 43 (and the provisions they adopt) take effect despite any incompatibilities or contradictions with international agreements or national law, and that the rules are not unlawful because of these contradictions. Even more explosive, the effect of Section 7A for the implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement is no longer effective with respect to the inconsistent and inconsistent provisions of the Act referred to in Clause 45. And in a reversal of the normal rule that laws are interpreted in accordance with international obligations, Article 45(2)(c) rather states that the interpretation of the Withdrawal Agreement should not be inconsistent or inconsistent with Clause 45. 6. The border between the Eastern Sovereign Control Area and the territories of the Republic of Cyprus in which the Government of the Republic of Cyprus does not exercise effective control shall be considered to be part of the external borders of the territorial areas for the purposes of this Article for the duration of the suspension of the application of the acquis in accordance with Article 1 of Protocol No 10. .
