The Foreign Secretary will travel to Brussels to discuss how to preserve “peace and stability” in the province in the wake of the collapse of the power-sharing deal in the Northern Ireland Assembly.

She will attend the first meeting since June of the joint UK-EU committee set up to monitor the Withdrawal Agreement for talks with European Commission vice president Maros Sefcovic and representatives from EU states.

Ms Truss said: “I will be outlining to EU member states the importance of finding solutions that protect the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement in all its dimensions.

“It is important we all work together to preserve peace and stability in Northern Ireland,” she added.

The province’s assembly has been in crisis since DUP First Minister Paul Givan resigned on February 3 in protest at the Brexit deal’s trade rules.
