Tánaiste Statement on developments in NI

Northern Ireland Peace Process, Tánaiste Simon Coveney, Press Releases, Great Britain, Ireland, 2018


"The announcement from the DUP is clearly very disappointing. The Secretary of State and I have spoken and will remain in close contact and I am briefing the Taoiseach on developments.


"As co-guarantors of the Good Friday Agreement, the UK and Irish governments have an obligation to uphold and protect the letter and spirit of that Agreement. We will need to reflect in the coming days on how best to do that."
