Minister Coveney meets with Secretary of State for Northern Ireland-Joint Statement

The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence Simon Coveney, T.D., and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Brandon Lewis, CBE MP, met today in Dublin.

Following their meeting, they released this joint statement:
“Today we met to discuss a range of issues. We agreed on the need to work together in close partnership to protect and uphold all aspects of the Belfast / Good Friday Agreement in all circumstances.

We have also agreed to convene a meeting of the British-Irish Intergovernmental Conference in June, to discuss matters of mutual interest within the competence of both Governments as the Agreement intended.”

We are aware that there are sincerely held concerns in different communities in Northern Ireland in relation to a number of issues and firmly agree that the best way forward is through dialogue and engagement.

We recognise the responsibility we all bear to enhance the confidence of everyone in Northern Ireland in all the institutions of the Agreement to help realise its vision for reconciliation, equality, respect for rights and parity of esteem."
