Adams Meets President Clinton

6 July, 2003

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams today met former US President Bill Clinton in Derry. Speaking after the meeting a Sinn Féin spokesperson said:

" Gerry Adams met with President Clinton for around 30 minutes. Mr. Adams expressed his concern about the failure of the British government thus far to publicly set a definite date for the Assembly elections.

" The discussions were a useful engagement and the two men discussed the ongoing efforts to ensure that the summer months are calm and Mr. Adams brought President Clinton up to date on Sinn Féin efforts to out reach to unionism.

" Although Gerry Adam's briefs Mr. Clinton regularly on developments in the peace process, today's meeting was important because it was face to face in nature." ENDS
