Sinn Féin tell governments any agreement must be bedded in the Good Friday Agreement
Sinn Féin Chairperson Mitchel Mc Laughlin MLA speaking after meeting the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern at the Irish Embassy in London today said:
"Our objectives in these intense discussions with the two governments have been two fold. Firstly, to get the DUP to come on board a comprehensive agreement. Secondly, to ensure both governments remain faithful to the Good Friday Agreement.
"These points are particularly important today given that Ian Paisley is responding to the outline presented by the two governments. In response to this it is important that the governments insist that any agreement reached must be bedded in and aimed at the delivery of the Good Friday Agreement.
"That is our clear message to the two governments today." ENDS
