EU does not care what will happen with the Irish border in Brexit negotiations

Summary of Disinformation

The European Union does not care what will happen with the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. For European bureaucrats there is no difference how the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, it simply must leave.

Disproof

The decision to leave the EU was made by the British people in 2016.

EU and UK have mutual interest in ensuring there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

For the EU, the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland is an essential part of the Brexit withdrawal agreement. See here and here for EU position on the matter.
