All quotes by Theresa May on Northern Ireland

We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond. As and when details are finalised, both parties will put them forward.feedback

We need to pull together in order to try and deliver on the Brexit negotiations, not trying to drive these four nations apart, which is what Nicola Sturgeon is trying to do. In this week of all weeks we stand together, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as one United Kingdom.feedback

We have got to make sure we do resolve the issue of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. I'm very clear that we want to see no return to the borders of the past, no hard border, but I'm clear that we need to see as seamless and frictionless a border as possible. There's goodwill on all sides.feedback

We will strengthen the Union of the four nations that comprise our United Kingdom. It is the expectation of the Government that the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will see a significant increase in their decision-making power as a result of this process.feedback

In the letter that has been delivered to President Tusk today… I have been clear that the deep and special partnership we seek is in the best interests of the United Kingdom and of the European Union too. And it is the expectation of the government that the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will see a significant increase in their decision-making power as a result of this process.feedback

We also have an important responsibility to make sure that nothing is done to jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland, and to continue to uphold the Belfast Agreement. It is the expectation of the government that the outcome of this process will be a significant increase in the decision-making power of each devolved administration. We… believe it is necessary to agree the terms of our future partnership alongside those of our withdrawal from the European Union.feedback

While we certainly didn't always see eye-to-eye even in later years, as deputy first minister for nearly a decade he was one of the pioneers of implementing cross community power sharing in Northern Ireland. He understood both its fragility and its precious significance and played a vital part in helping to find a way through many difficult moments. At the heart of it all was his profound optimism for the future of Northern Ireland -- and I believe we should all hold fast to that optimism today.feedback

First and foremost, my thoughts are with the family of Martin McGuinness at this sad time. While I can never condone the path he took in the earlier part of his life, Martin McGuinness ultimately played a defining role in leading the Republican movement away from violence. In doing so, he made an essential and historic contribution to the extraordinary journey of Northern Ireland from conflict to peace.feedback

The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has looked at this issue. It is not right to have a border poll at this stage. What we should all be focusing on is bringing the parties together to ensure that we can continue to see the devolved administration in Northern Ireland working, as it has done, in the interests of the people of Northern Ireland. We want to see that devolved administration being formed and that is what all the parties should be looking for at the moment.feedback
