Good Friday Agreement: Clinton visit marks anniversary

Good Friday Agreement: Clinton visit marks anniversary

He told RTE's Today with Sean O'Rourke show that it is "daft" that there is a thought that Northern Ireland can be separated from the United Kingdom.

"The spirit endures. the letter of the Good Friday Agreement endures. the principles of the Good Friday Agreement will guide us", he said.

Professor James McElnay, the university's acting vice-chancellor, said: "We are honoured and delighted to welcome President Clinton to Queen's University to mark the 20th anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement".

The lack of violence in Ireland is the lasting legacy of the Good Friday Agreement, according to the Taoiseach. Blair, who campaigned against Brexit, warned a hard border would be a disaster for the peace deal.

"The Tory government has actively encouraged the most negative, intransigent and sectarian elements of political unionism to attack and undermine the Good Friday Agreement", Gerry Adams, the former Sinn Fein leader who also helped negotiate the agreement, said in a speech on Tuesday.

"I ask you to join me in recognising the heroes and the peacemakers".

The devolved institutions at Stormont collapsed after the resignation of Martin McGuinness amid a row over a botched green energy scheme.

Once Verstappen got back to the pits and changed tires it became clear he had a differential issue and he also stopped on track. That represented a stunning turnaround for Honda, Toro Rosso's engine partners after three nightmare years at McLaren .

The Northern Ireland Executive has not met since January 2017 due to a bitter dispute between the DUP and Sinn Féin.

A deal had been close but the talks process broke down on Valentine's Day and there have been further wranglings over leaked documents and their content.

In a statement marking the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the Archbishop of Armagh, Eamon Martin, and the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh, Richard Clarke, joined together "to give thanks to God for all that has been achieved in building peace since that historic moment" when the agreement was signed on 10th April 1988.

"In a world today where there are people who are aggressively trying to destroy the very idea of popular democracy, it embodied everything that I believe works best". Especially when I watch television sitting in my house, just me and the dog, and I watch the hypocrisies which are unbelievable and the untruths which are believable.

"It is the future we should be looking at".

Later, Mr Clinton and Mr Mitchell will both receive the freedom of Belfast in a special ceremony at the Ulster Hall.
