Restoring powersharing the priority as Brexit talks begin, says Irish Minister
19 June, 2017, 15:56
Face to face contact between the two key players stalled last week because the DUP was concentrating on its business with the Conservative party in London.
"An agreement to restore devolved power-sharing government in Stormont must be reached by the 29 June deadline", he said.
"What we are trying to do is obviously of great importance and is not to be rushed".
THE DUP are living in a "fool's paradise" if they believe there can be a return to the power-sharing institutions without committing to a rights-based approach to government, Sinn Féin'sDeclan Kearney told the annual Wolfe Tone Commemoration in Bodenstown on Sunday.
In a phone call with Mrs May, the outgoing Irish prime minister, Enda Kenny, indicated his concern that her deal with the DUP would "put the Good Friday Agreement at risk", a spokesman for Mr Kenny said.
"We want to see any deal between those two parties reflect the wishes of all of the people of Northern Ireland, not just one section of the community".
May's government has said its Brexit plans remain the same, and will be pressing for close economic ties but a clear break with the bloc to be able to control immigration and restore sovereignty over British laws.
In another development, the traditionally moderate Unionist and Nationalist parties in Northern Ireland, the Ulster Unionist Party and the Social Democratic and Labour Party respectively, lost all their seats.
Talks between the British and Irish governments and the five main Northern Ireland parties are due to resume at Stormont today with the aim of forming a powersharing government by June 29th. "I think it is very much doable to have a deal by the end of this month", she added.
According to the Irish government statement, Varadkar raised the ongoing discussions on formation of a new government in London with the DUP, which is a matter for the parties represented at Westminster, but stressed the need to avoid any outcome which could interfere with devolution and the prospects of re-establishing the Executive.
He claimed such a deal could endanger the peace process.
"There is an irony to being lectured by some about our role in the national government of the United Kingdom when Sinn Fein want to be in government here in the Republic of Ireland", she said.
May has said she is open to some kind of association agreement with the customs union and wants to avoid any so-called "cliff-edge" into uncertain trading conditions, but she has also said Britain must be able to control immigration - something it can not do while a member of the EU.
