Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness and his counterpart, Arlene Foster, have requested an urgent meeting with David Cameron to discuss the implications of Brexit for the north.
The move came to light as Arlene Foster addressed a special meeting of Stormont earlier this week,
The two ministers have vowed to do all in their power to protect the interest of people here. Ms Foster said: “We have already spoken to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. The deputy First Minister and I have also requested an urgent meeting with the Prime Minister in the coming weeks to discuss matters further. We will meet with the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny next Monday to commence discussions on the nature of our relationship going forward.”
It is thought the border region and funding will be among the issues raised during the talks.
