Adams welcomes Mícheál Martin intervention

4 November, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has welcomed the remarks of Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mícheál Martin TD to the Seanad.

Mr. Adams said:

“The government, along with the British government, is a guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement and the St. Andrews Agreement.

“Given the record of the British government and particularly of British secretary of State’s, and the failure to press for the full implementation of aspects of these agreements, the responsibility of the Irish government is fundamental and indispensable.

“I welcome this intervention by Minister Martin. His statement outlines the progress which has been made and this is substantial and very significant.

“It also outlines areas where more work needs to be done.

“I look to the Irish Government to raise these issues with the British government on a consistent and on-going and strategic way.” ENDS
