Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has said there is an urgent need for the British and Irish governments to live up to their responsibilities to the peace process.
Speaking ahead of a meeting between a Sinn Féin delegation of Gerry Adams, Mary Lou McDonald and Martin McGuinness with Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Tánaiste Joan Burton the Louth TD said;
“There is an urgent need to create a pro-agreement axis led by the two governments to back the peace process.
“As co-guarantors of the Good Friday Agreement, the British and Irish governments have responsibilities to promote and support the peace process.
“We have made that clear to both British Prime Minister David Cameron and An Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
“A strong position from both governments would send a clear message to those who are trying to derail the progress we have made.
“The two governments could do this by implementing the outstanding issues of the Good Friday Agreement.”
