Gerry Adams holds talks with UUP leader David Trimble
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP met UUP leader David Trimble at lunchtime today. They have agreed to hold further meetings.
A spokesperson for Mr. Adams said:
"Sinn Féin will not be publicly rehearsing all the issues discussed by the two leaders. It is a matter of public knowledge that we are pressing for an election date as soon as possible.
"There is also a need to ensure that the institutions will be sustained and that outstanding aspects of the Good Friday Agreement will be completed. Unionists have concerns as well of course and all of this argues for a collective effort.
"The least said at this point the better. No-one should underestimate the difficulties that have to be overcome."ENDS
