U.S. Government Statement on Northern Ireland
17 January 2017

 

The United States’ remains committed to supporting a more peaceful and prosperous Northern Ireland.  To this end, we urge all political parties to focus on quickly finding a way forward to the resumption of stable devolved governance.  We also encourage civil society leaders to continue their vital work building a better, shared future.

Restored devolved democratic institutions and an engaged, constructive citizenry can best take Northern Ireland forward.

We commend the continued commitment of the U.K. and Irish Governments to foster consensus among parties to ensure full implementation of the power-sharing agreements.
