Response to meeting cancellation by Ted Kennedy
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has arrived in New York on the second day of a week long visit to the US. Responding to news that Senator Ted Kennedy has cancelled a planned meeting for Thursday a spokesperson for Mr Adams in New York said:
"We are disappointed at this decision. Senator Kennedy has played a positive role in the process.
"Sinn Féin has worked closely with him in the past. On this occasion we believe that he has been badly advised.
"For our part we will continue to tackle the issues which need to be resolved if the Peace Process is to succeed and we are confident that we will work with Senator Kennedy again in the future." ENDS
