Adams - Negotiations cancellation unacceptable

19 April, 2004

Responding to media reports that the planned political negotiations scheduled to take place next week in London have been cancelled by the governments, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP said:

"It is simply not good enough for the two governments to unilaterally cancel expected talks in London next week.

"Tonight's announcement is an example of the ad hoc and almost casual attitude of London and Dublin towards the process.

"It follows on from the Irish Government decision to run with a referendum on citizenship and the expected IMC Report tomorrow. Both are in contravention of the Good Friday Agreement.

"This is unacceptable."ENDS
