  • Description

    Eire's Foreign Minister, Dr. Patrick Hillery, blamed the situation in Northern Ireland on social and political problems in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on thursday (7 October). He was replying to an address by the British Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home who had earlier maintained that the religious differences between the two factions in Northern Ireland had led to the recent Violence in Belfast and the surrounding areas.

    Dr. Hillery criticised British troops in Northern Ireland, saying that they have been transformed from a peace-keeping force into what the eyes of the minority saw as coercive instrument being used to assist the Northern Ireland Government.
