Truss hailed as Brexit saviour – hopes Frost replacement to bring 'pragmatism' to talks


Sinn Fein held separate talks with the Foreign Secretary.

After the meeting, Michelle O’Neill, Northern Ireland’s deputy First Minister and Sinn Fein politician, said the continued talk about triggering Article 16 was “reckless”.

In Northern Ireland, the post of First Minister and Deputy First Minister must be held by a politician from a unionist and a nationalist party, as per the Good Friday Agreement.

Sir Jeffrey has indicated that a “pause” on the DUP’s threat to collapse the current power-sharing agreement between the two parties will remain pending the outcome of negotiations with the EU.
