The US President Donald trump will not attend next month Ireland, as previously planned, officials said in Dublin.
The visit was postponed for reasons “related to the schedule”, announced Tuesday the Irish government.
However, after the announcement came from Dublin, a spokesman for the White house Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement which said: “We are still in the stage of solution (the question of) whether Ireland is one of the stops on this trip”. According to Sanders, exactly solved only that the President will be in Paris on 11 November to take part in a ceremony to mark the centenary of the First world war.
Cancellation of a visit to Ireland, which was previously scheduled for November 12, first announced the newspaper of the Dublin Independent and Irish public broadcaster RTE.
August 31, the White house said that the stop of the President in Ireland is called “refresh deep historical ties between our two countries.”
In March the Prime Minister of Ireland, Leo Varadkar was received by President of the trump in the White house.
Speaking on the second of September in the program of the TV company RTE, Varadkar admitted that he was surprised by the fact that the US President plans to visit Ireland in November. According to the Prime Minister, although trump invited to visit Ireland at any time, “this (news) was somewhat unexpected.”
Previously it was assumed that trump will spend a day in Dublin before heading to Doonbeg – a city on the Atlantic coast, where he owns a field for playing Golf.
Current development means a considerable relief for the Irish government, notes the Independent, as the working and the Green party of Ireland was intended to commemorate the visit of Donald trump’s protests.
Before reporting the cancellation of the visit, the leader of the centrist party of the LPI File Michael Martin said that the visit trump would be an “opportunity to talk to him and Express our position on a range of issues, (which) we are unhappy today”.
