Gerry Adams calls on the US to rein in anti-Sinn Fein elements within its system

26 January, 2006


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams who is meeting USA Special Envoy Mitchell  Reiss tomorrow, has called on the US to rein in anti-Sinn Féin elements within its system.

Mr Adams said.

'If the Bush Administration is to return to the positive role it and the Clinton administration played in the Irish peace process then anti-Sinn Féin elements will have to be reined in.

Sinn Féin has never looked for special treatment. The bedrock of our support comes from Irish America.

We have never looked for party political support from any US official or agency. All parties have to be given parity of esteem and equality of treatment.  Any other approach is counter productive and unhelpful.

I want to see this administration returning to an even handed and balanced approach.  The Sinn Féin  delegation will tell Mitchell Reiss this when we meet him tomorrow." ENDS
