The World

Britain and Ireland have reportedly concluded an agreement on Northern Ireland that is sure to inflame Protestants who fear it could lead toward unification with the Roman Catholic south. The editor of the influential Irish Press newspaper said in Dublin that the accord will be announced at a meeting Friday between Irish Prime Minister Garret FitzGerald and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The accord reportedly calls for an Anglo-Irish ministerial group with a Belfast-based secretariat and a new procedure for investigating complaints by the Catholic minority in Ulster.
