Ó Muilleoir welcomes US commitment to Good Friday Agreement
Speaking after Congressmen Richard Neal and Peter King reiterated the commitment of US Congress to the Good Friday Agreement and for the protection of Irish interests in the face of Brexit.
Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said:
“I welcome the unequivocal, bipartisan, commitment of US Congress in their support for the Good Friday Agreement and for the protection of Irish interests in the face of Brexit and the impact it will have on our people, businesses and peace.
“I welcome the support of US politicians who have warned that any future free-trade agreement between the US and Britain is not on the cards if there was to be a return to a hard border on the island of Ireland.
“Successive US administrations provided critical support to aid our peace process and in negotiating the Good Friday Agreement twenty-one years ago.
“The protection of the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts is the bottom line and is non-negotiable.”
