Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness met today with US Senator Gary Hart who is on a fact-finding mission to Ireland.
The Deputy First Minister said:
“I met with Senator Hart and briefed him on the current serious challenges facing the political process in the North.
“I made it clear that Sinn Féin welcomes continued US engagement in the political process as the US has played a positive role in the development of the Irish peace process.
“It remains our view that we can find a resolution to all the difficulties facing the political process through genuine engagement by all parties and a hands-on proactive approach by the British and Irish governments in any negotiations.”
