Adams briefs Clinton on Policing and Justice Issue

24 September, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams this afternoon met President Bill Clinton and a number of his senior staff while attending the Clinton Global Initiative event in New York.

Mr. Adams, who is a member of the CGI, is attending the first two days of the Initiative.

Speaking after the meeting Mr. Adams said:

“President Clinton continues to retain a close interest in Ireland. His invitation to the First and deputy First Ministers to address a session of the CGI this evening is evidence of that.

I briefed the President on the current political situation and on the delays arising from the refusal of some to properly work the partnership government arrangements of the Executive and the other political institutions.

I also expressed my dissatisfaction at the failure of the British and Irish governments to deliver on their outstanding obligations under the Good Friday and St. Andrews Agreements.
