Britain, Ireland agree to work together to smooth post-Brexit trade

·1 min read

LONDON, May 14 (Reuters) - Britain and Ireland will work together to maintain smooth trade between Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland, the prime ministers of Britain and Ireland said on Friday after meeting at Prime Minister Boris Johnson's country residence.

Johnson and Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin agreed "on the importance of working together to uphold the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement and to maintain smooth trade between Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland", a spokesperson for Johnson's office said in a statement.

The two leaders also agreed it was "profoundly sad" that the families of victims had to wait so long for the truth over the deaths of 10 people killed in a 1971 incident in Belfast during a British Army operation, the spokesperson said. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; Editing by Alistair Smout)
