Sinn Féin MPs meet with Swedish and Norwegian embassies
Sinn Féin MPs Mickey Brady and Francie Molloy met with officials from the Swedish and Norwegian embassies in London today, to discuss the imminent Brexit complications for Ireland, and the case for Designated Special Status for the north of Ireland within the EU.
Mickey Brady MP said:
“Our meeting with Norwegian and Swedish embassy officials is part of our ongoing international engagement efforts to make the post-Brexit case for Designated Special Status for the north of Ireland within the EU.
“Norway in particular operate under a bespoke economic arrangement with the EU, and in this context we discussed the future for the north of Ireland remaining within both the Customs Union and the Single Market.
“As Sinn Féin MPs we’re routinely consistently making the case for Designated Special Status in Dublin, London and Brussels.
“The citizens of the north voted to remain. To protect the welfare and livelihoods of citizens, our rural communities, and the Good Friday Agreement, the north of Ireland must be granted Designated Special Status within the EU after Brexit.”
