Gerry Adams holds talks with Taoiseach in Washington DC
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP accompanied by party colleague Rita O'Hare met the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern in Washington last night. The meeting lasted for just under an hour.
Speaking afterwards Mr. Adams said:
"The peace process is the most important issue facing the people of Ireland. It is in serious difficulties at this time following the failure of the December efforts to achieve a comprehensive agreement and subsequent events.
"I welcome the opportunity to meet the Taoiseach and the Minister for Foreign Affairs. It was a useful meeting and an opportunity to focus on how we can collectively resolve the outstanding issues.
The Taoiseach and I agreed to meet after our return to Ireland."ENDS
