There are, of course, many others who contributed to the agreement crossing the line, including political parties such as the Northern Ireland Women`s Coalition, an outright party that participated in the peace negotiations, religious figures and, of course, the people of Northern Ireland who voted overwhelmingly in favour of it. The result of these referendums was a large majority in both parts of Ireland in favour of the agreement. In the Republic, 56% of the electorate voted, 94% of the vote voted in favour of the revision of the Constitution. The turnout was 81% in Northern Ireland, with 71% of the vote for the agreement. 16I would now like to turn to the process of obtaining this agreement and what its implementation means for Ireland, the North and the South, for the relations between Ireland and the United Kingdom in general, and for the impact on relations with Great Britain itself. The Good Friday Agreement (GFA) or the Belfast Agreement (irish: Comhaonté Aoine an Chéasta or Comhaonté Bhéal Feirste; Ulster-Scots: Guid Friday Greeance or Bilfawst Greeance) is a couple of agreements signed on 10 April 1998 that put an end to most of the violence of the Troubles, a political conflict in Northern Ireland that had erupted since the late 1960s. This was an important development in the Northern Ireland peace process in the 1990s. Northern Ireland`s current system of de-decentralized government is based on the agreement. The agreement also created a number of institutions between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. 31 Mr Blair also tried to maintain good relations with the Irish government.
He fully welcomed the essential cooperation with Dublin for lasting political peace, stability and solution in the North. If an agreement has not been reached, peace and stability must at least be guaranteed. Both demanded the same good relations with Dublin. Steve Aiken, the CEO of UUP, said that while the withdrawal agreement was bad for Northern Ireland, Johnson`s bill was not the answer. Gerry Adams, chairman of the Sinn Féin Republican Party, and his deputy Martin McGuinness, who later became Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, played a key role in the agreement. John Morrison explains his trip from provisional IRA members to Sinn Féin leaders. Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Sunday there could be “limited controls” on goods arriving in the region from Britain because of an agreement to prevent the need for physical infrastructure at the Irish border. 4The constitutional relationship with the Republic is essentially possible. In reality, it will only exist if the majority of the population of Northern Ireland wishes to do so. This is what the principle of approval means, a central principle of the agreement – the approval of a majority in Northern Ireland. In addition to the number of signatories[note 1], Stefan Wolff identifies the following similarities and differences between the issues raised in the two agreements: London`s direct domination ended in Northern Ireland when power was formally transferred to the new Northern Ireland Assembly, the North-South Council of Ministers and the Anglo-Irish Council, when the decisions to launch the British-Irish Agreement came into force on 2 December 1999.    Article 4, paragraph 2 of the Anglo-Irish Agreement (the agreement between the British and Irish governments on the implementation of the Belfast Agreement) required both governments to inquire in writing about compliance with the terms of entry into force of the Anglo-Irish Agreement; The latter is expected to come into effect as soon as both notifications are received.
 The British government has agreed to participate in a televised ceremony at Iveagh House in Dublin, the Irish Foreign Office.
