McCallion welcomes US support for Good Friday Agreement

Sinn Féin’s Elisha McCallion has welcomed strong support from the US House of Representatives for the Good Friday Agreement. 

The Foyle candidate said: 

“I welcome the US House of Representatives resolution supporting the Good Friday Agreement and the need to protect it from the threat of Brexit. 

“I met with the resolution’s co-sponsor, Congressman Brendan Boyle when he attended the Irish parliament’s committee for the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement which I attend alongside fellow MPs, TDs and Senators. We emphasised the need to protect the Good Friday Agreement from the threat of Brexit. 

“This comes after similar comments from the chairperson of the influential Ways and Means Committee, Richie Neal, and the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, who has made it clear that Congress will not support any post-Brexit trade deal with Britain if it threatens the Good Friday Agreement.

“Sinn Féin is making the voice of the north heard on Brexit where it matters; in Brussels, in Dublin and in Washington.”
