Sinn Fein accuses Johnson of sacrificing Northern Ireland interests

Reference News Network reported on June 13According to a report by AFP in London on June 12, the leader of Irish nationalist Sinn Fein accused British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the 12th of sacrificing Northern Ireland to consolidate his “weak” position.

According to reports, Johnson’s government will introduce a bill on the 13th to change the post-Brexit commitment to Northern Ireland, but the British government has denied breaching its treaty obligations to the EU.

British Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Brandon Lewis insists the bill is “legitimate” and necessary to address issues in the EU protocol to restore power-sharing government in troubled Northern Ireland.

However, Sinn Fein president Mary Lou Macdonald said the bill unilaterally violated the treaty agreed when Britain left the European Union, noting that Johnson narrowly won a Conservative Party no-confidence vote on Saturday.

“It is shameful to use Northern Ireland as a bargaining chip”, MacDonald told Sky News, accusing the Conservative Party of “playing tricks”.

According to Reuters, MacDonald also said in the above interview that Britain’s unilateral revision of the Northern Ireland trade protocol would violate international law.Return to Sohu, see more
