Boris Johnson meets Sinn Féin and DUP following power-sharing agreement

63

Boris Johnson has met Stormont’s newly-appointed leaders for talks following reaching an agreement last week.

Johnson was greeted by DUP First Minister Arlene Foster and Sinn Fein deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill outside Stormont in Belfast.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is also due at Stormont later today as he and Johnson mark the resurrection of the institutions after a three-year political impasse.

Ahead of Johnson’s arrival, a Stormont minister said he expected the UK government to deliver at least £2 billion to support the powersharing deal.

The Irish government has also made financial pledges within the agreement.
