Gerry Adams demands Governments move on Assembly

19 March, 2006

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams this evening completed his series of engagements in the USA. This morning Mr Adams addressed 500 people in Boston in an event organised by Congressman Richie Neal.

Speaking before he returned to Ireland Mr Adams said:

"The Good Friday Agreement is an accommodation. It was a big compromise for republicans. Sinn Féin is focused on uniting Orange and Green and bringing about an end to partition.

"In the meantime the two governments have a solemn obligation and duty to reconvene the Northern Assembly. They need to do this before the early summer. The time for rhetoric from Dublin and London is over. The time has now come for the two governments deliver." ENDS
