McGuinness to meet European Parliament leaders in Brussels - Anderson

28 September, 2016 - by Martina Anderson MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said Martin McGuinness will meet leaders of the European Parliament in Brussels next month for discussions on the impact of the recent EU referendum. 

Ms Anderson said; 

"There is no doubt that the impact of the recent EU referendum will have a huge effect on everyone in Ireland, north and south. 

"As part of Sinn Féin's ongoing engagement on the impact of a possible Brexit and the need for the remain vote of the North to be respected, Martin McGuinness will travel to the European Parliament next month to meet with leaders of the political groupings. 

"There is no good outcome of Brexit for the people of the North and it is important that we engage with political leaders from across Europe to make them aware of the potential impact for the people of Ireland and I look forward to those meetings. 

"The reality is that the majority of the people of the north - unionists, nationalists, republicans and others - voted to remain in the EU and that vote must be respected."
