Sunak has hailed the Northern Ireland peace deal as a ‘wonderful moment’

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak hailed the historic peace deal signed in Northern Ireland on Sunday, with US President Joe Biden visiting to mark its 25th anniversary.

Sunak, 42, was 17 when he signed the Good Friday Agreement on April 10, 1998, ending three decades of bloody conflict in the British province.

Downing Street said in a statement that the deal was “a significant moment in our country’s history”. “This is a very rare example of people doing the previously unthinkable to build a better future for Northern Ireland,” he added.

“I will think above all in the days ahead of the promise we made to all the people of Northern Ireland for a better future,” he added.

Sunak will take part in a series of events next week to mark the anniversary of the US-brokered deal between the British and Irish governments and political parties in Northern Ireland.

On Tuesday evening, Sunak will greet Joe Biden upon his arrival in the county. According to Downing Street, Chung and Biden are set to hold a bilateral meeting.

Sunak will attend a conference at Queen’s University Belfast to mark the anniversary and will be invited to a “private gala dinner”.

Referring to Washington’s “central role” in the peace process, Sunak’s office said Joe Biden’s visit would allow him to “celebrate Northern Ireland’s successes and encourage further long-term investment”.

In September, the UK plans to host the Northern Ireland Investment Summit in Belfast.

During his four-day visit, Irish-born Joe Biden visits the neighboring Republic of Ireland.

The White House said he will deliver a speech addressing the relationship between the United States and Ireland.
