BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union ministers meeting on Tuesday will discuss how to ease tensions with London over trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland but the bloc will not renegotiate provisions for the sensitive frontier agreed in the Brexit divorce deal, a senior EU diplomat said on Monday.

The EU executive, which is negotiating with London on behalf of the bloc's 27 member countries, is expected to outline by the end of September plans that facilitate the movement of goods after Brexit.
