McGuinness holds talks with Dermot Ahern
Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP this afternoon held talks with the Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern in Dundalk.
Mr McGuinness said:
" This afternoon I met with the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern in Dundalk. It was the latest meeting in an intensive series of engagements over the past number of months aimed at achieving a comprehensive deal which would see the political institutions restored and the outstanding aspects of the Good Friday Agreement implemented.
" At present the DUP refuses to share power with nationalists and republicans. Until a time when unionists are prepared to work alongside the rest of us as equals, the two governments as the defenders of the Agreement must drive the process forward." ENDS
