Sinn Féin President to visit US
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP will travel to the US for six days later this week where he will meet with senior Congress members, Senators and Governors and with Irish American organisations to update them on the ongoing efforts to end the impasse in the peace process. He will also attend a number of functions organised by Friends of Sinn Féin.
Speaking prior to the trip a Sinn Féin spokesperson said:
"The US continues to be a vital component in securing the peace process and the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement. Mr. Adams will be taking the opportunity to urge all those in the US to continue to play this important role." ENDS
