Coveney appeals to British not to act unilaterally on amnesty
Anglo-Irish relations under increased strain over British government’s plan to end prosecutions for crimes related to the Troubles in Northern Ireland
The government is concerned about the latest deterioration in Anglo-Irish relations caused by the British government’s plan to end prosecutions for crimes related to the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
Simon Coveney, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, has reiterated the Irish government’s position that any unilateral action on this issue would be in contravention of the Stormont House Agreement.
But there is deep concern in the government about the approach being taken by the British government, informed sources have told the Business Post.
