Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún met with Gary Titley MEP, leader of the British Labour MEPs in Strasbourg this week. The meeting, which Ms de Brún described as 'useful' was at her request. The Sinn Féin MEPs have had a number of meetings in recent weeks to provide European parliamentarian with information about the Irish peace process'.
Speaking from Strasbourg Ms de Brún said:
"I found the meeting with Gary Titley MEP useful. I drew attention to a number of issues that are part of the process of implementing the Good Friday Agreement and in particular the need to re-establish the institutions and move forward on the all-Ireland aspects of the agreement. I also raised the issues of policing, demilitarisation, equality and human right
"We also spoke about the murder of Robert McCartney.
"I spoke to Mr Titley about the significant initiative undertaken by Gerry Adams last week.
"In addition to the meeting with Mr Titley, both Mary Lou Mc Donald and I are engaged in an ongoing programme of dialogue with MEPs from across the EU to ensure that they are kept informed of on-going developments in the Irish peace process." ENDS
