LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Northern Ireland Minister Brandon Lewis urged communities in Northern Ireland to come together to resolve tension there, saying he would hold meetings with leaders in the British province about recent violence.

"All communities in Northern Ireland must work together to resolve the tensions that we are currently facing," Lewis said in a statement.

"The people of Northern Ireland deserve better than a continuation of the violence and disorder that we have witnessed in recent days."
