Hart meeting positive and constructive - McCann
Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann said today's meeting with US talks envoy, former senator Gary Hart, was positive and constructive and an important signal of on-going interest and engagement by the US administration.
Speaking after meeting the US envoy, Ms McCann said;
"We held a number of meetings today with the British and Irish governments, the UUP, the Alliance Party and former senator Gary Hart.
"We had a very positive and constructive engagement with former Senator Hart and are deeply appreciative of the ongoing interest of the US administration in the talks process.
"US support and involvement has been of crucial importance at various stages in the development of the peace and political processes. The appointment of Gary Hart as an envoy is an important intervention and brings an important focus to the current discussions.
"It remains our view that the best way to move forward on all of the outstanding issues is through a plenary involving all parties, the two governments and the support of the US administration."
