Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Fine Gael needs to prove it can be trusted on North - Adams

21 June, 2010 - by Pat Sheehan

Speaking prior to a meeting with a Fine Gael delegation at Stormont today, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said:

“National and democratic rights have to be central to the agenda of any Taoiseach. If Enda Kenny wants to be Taoiseach, he needs to show that he can be trusted in relation to the north, the Peace Process, and the ongoing process of all-Ireland integration and building a consensus for national reconciliation.

“Frankly many people don’t trust Fine Gael on these issues.
If Fine Gael gets into power, it must realise that an Irish Government has a particular responsibility to ensure that the rights and entitlements of all citizens in the north are upheld.

“Truth recovery is part of this. This includes the Dublin-Monaghan bombs.
Sinn Féin will be impressing on Enda Kenny the need to see an-all Ireland economy as a crucial part of the solution to the current economic crisis and seeking commitments from his party to work for the integration of infrastructure and public services on an all-Ireland basis.”
