Martin McGuinness meets George Mitchell in Belfast
Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP this afternoon met with Senator George Mitchell in Belfast. Speaking after the meeting Mr McGuinness said:
"George Mitchell has made a very powerful contribution to the Irish Peace Process and is always a welcome visitor to Belfast. He continues to contribute to society here through his work with Queen's.
"This afternoon's meeting was an opportunity to present to Senator Mitchell Sinn Féin's view on the current state of the political process and on efforts to see the current impasse overcome.
"As someone who appreciates the importance and significance of inclusive dialogue and negotiations I made it clear to Senator Mitchell our firm belief that if progress is to be made in September then it is vital that all of the parties and the two governments put in the necessary work now." ENDS
