The negotiations over a new governing coalition in Northern Ireland are jammed. The leaders of the two main political parties in the Uk, the department acknowledged Tuesday that they do not expect it again in the near future agree.

The republican Sinn Féin and the y of the Democratic Unionists (DUP) negotiating since march on a new government. DUP leader Arlene Foster said Tuesday disappointed about the impasse. “We will continue throughout the summer to work. Hopefully we get there later in the year now,” she said to reporters.
