Clinton optimistic Northern Ireland govt will restart 2023

Former President of the United States Bill Clinton has expressed his confidence that one of the most prominent political parties in Northern Ireland will soon cease a boycott that has halted the formation of the regional government for more than a year.

After meeting with the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party on Monday, Clinton stated, “I left that meeting more optimistic than I entered it.” This week, Clinton is in Belfast to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, which put an end to decades of sectarian violence.

Since the DUP resigned their position as part of a protest against the post-Brexit trade regulations that enforced a customs border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom, there has been no functioning government in Northern Ireland.
