European Parliament calls for resumption of Northern peace process

The European Parliament today called on all parties to join talks to restart the Northern peace process. MEPs passed a resolution, urging participants to resolve issues that are hindering progress such as flags and parades, so the functioning and stability of the North’s democratic institutions can be reinforced. Speaking ahead of the vote, Sinn Fein’s Dublin MEP Lynn Boylan said EU involvement has been “extremely beneficial”. The EU PEACE project provides €150 million in funds to tackle priority issues. However Ms Boylan added that EU engagement must be extended beyond just providing funds.
