Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin focused on resolution

17 June, 2004

Commenting on media reports of contacts between Sinn Féin negotiators and the British government, Sinn Féin National Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin said:

" Sinn Féin are involved in intensive efforts to see a resolution to the outstanding matters but will not discuss the detail of these engagements in the public arena.

" However what I can say is that our negotiating team remained in contact with the two governments throughout the course of the election campaign and continue to do so.

" Sinn Féin are determined to play our part in overcoming the current crisis in the peace process. We have a mandate from the people to do this. However this is not simply a matter for Sinn Féin. The two governments and the other parties have to play their role also." ENDS
