Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Queen Elizabeth celebrates peace efforts

“It is clear that reconciliation, equality and mutual understanding cannot be taken as an end in itself, and requires constant commitment and commitment,” the Queen wrote in a statement on Monday. Peace processes in the region deserve a generation of politicians and people with the courage and vision to reconcile divisions.

According to historians, May 3, 1921 is considered the birth of Northern Ireland. On that date, the law exposing the secession of Northern Ireland from the rest of the Irish Islands came into force. Unlike Ireland, which split into an independent republic in 1922, Northern Ireland has been British ever since. The question of whether the country should join the United Kingdom or reunite with the Republic of Ireland has sparked decades of bloody civil war. Tensions in the region have recently risen again – Brexit was created due to new rules for trade with Great Britain, among others.
