NI Protocol: Unilateral action 'will not work', say US politicians
Unilateral action on the Northern Ireland Protocol " will not work" a delegation of US politicians has told the UK government.
But the DUP said their view of the protocol was " one-sided".
On Monday, Mr Martin said there was " a deep well of support" for a " joint, pragmatic solution" to concerns over the protocol.
A nine-strong team led by Congressman Richard Neal is visiting to discuss the post-Brexit trading arrangements.
Mr Kildee, who met Ms Truss over the weekend, said there was no indication the UK Government intends to " change course".
" It's important, and we stress this, that the (UK Government) negotiate and that they not take unilateral action, " Mr Kildee told RTE Morning Ireland.
" The only way we can come to agreement, the only way we protect the incredible progress that's represented with the Good Friday Agreement, is face-to-face negotiation.
" We think unilateral solutions will not work, face-to-face negotiation to Work Out some of these technical questions can be achieved. "
Speaking in Kerry on Sunday, Mr Neal said the US would be.
But the DUP says the protocol will destroy the agreement.
Economy Minister Mr Lyons said it was " not going to be an easy task" to explain that view to the US delegation.
But speaking on Bbc News NI's Good Morning Ulster programme on Monday, Mr Lyons said his party would be very clear when it meets with the US team, that " rather than protecting the Good Friday Agreement and its successor agreements, the protocol actually damages them".
" It is not going to be an easy task, " Mr Lyons said.
" I previously met with Congressman Neal in Washington and reminded him and [House of Representatives Speaker] Nancy Pelosi of the problems with the protocol.
" It is fair to say they weren't interested and we're going to have a particular challenge with Congressman Neal. "
Mr Lyons said Mr Neal was a supporter of Irish unification and that he had worked closely With Friends of Sinn Féin.
Mr Lyons said his party wanted to see movement on the protocol but also accused the EU of being " painfully slow" at recognising issues surrounding the post-Brexit trading mechanism.
They say it has undermined Northern Ireland 's place in the UK and that it has led to increased costs for consumers.Congressional delegation
