Us Role In Good Friday Agreement


„If the UK violates this international treaty and Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement, there will be absolutely no chance that a trade deal between the US and Britain will go through Congress. The Good Friday Agreement is appreciated by the American people and will be proudly defended by the United States Congress. Nancy Pelosi, the spokeswoman for the US House of Representatives, has issued a series of warnings from senior US officials that the British government should not go back on the Brexit withdrawal agreement it signed with the European Union. Sammy Wilson previously backed the Trump presidency and tweeted shortly after his election a statement that the new US president „will look positively at trade deals with (Britain) and will not put us at the end of the queue, unlike (President) Obama.“ „I hope that President Trump will succeed in the election not only for the good of the U.S. economy, which is important to NI as a major exporter and recipient of foreign investment from U.S. companies, but also because of his attitude on important international issues such as the Middle East, China and climate change,“ Wilson said when asked to comment on the article.

In Northern Ireland, in 1998, during the referendum on the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland, voters were asked whether they supported the multi-party agreement.

In the Republic of Ireland, voters were asked whether they would allow the state to sign the agreement and allow the necessary constitutional amendments (Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland) to facilitate it. . . .
