The US House of Representatives unanimously voted in favour of a resolution to reaffirm support for the Good Friday Agreement (GFA).

The vote took place in the House of Representatives last night at 11.30pm Irish time following a debate on Capitol Hill.

It called for strict adherence to the Good Friday Agreement during Brexit negotiations “to ensure a lasting peace in Northern Ireland”.

The bill stated that the US Congress “greatly values” the relationship shared between the US, the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
