(Reuters) – Irish and British governments have “paused” talks to restore Northern Ireland’s devolved regional government, stalling a power-sharing agreement between the Irish nationalists and pro-British unionists in the region, the Financial Times reported on Friday.

Talks for a deal between the Sinn Fein party and the Democratic Unionist Party will restart after Christmas, the newspaper added, citing a senior Irish official.
