Adams calls for agreements to be implemented
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD said today that the approach of the British government to the talks in the north was self-serving and was neither neutral nor impartial.
Gerry Adams said:
“This was a highly successful election for Sinn Féin.
“We are here today to seek agreement to re-establish the Executive and the institutions on the basis of equality, respect and rights for all.
“This could and should be done by implementing what has already been agreed.
“The British government is not neutral or impartial. Their approach to talks is entirely self-serving.
“Any deal with the DUP and the Tories will not be to the benefit of the people of the north, our economy, our public services or securing designated special status for the north within the EU.
“We need the progressive parties to work together.
“We need a strong counter balance to the Tory Party and the DUP.
“The Irish Government and the incoming Taoiseach must assert their role to protect the Good Friday and other agreements.”
