Sinn Féin hold SDLP talks
A Sinn Féin delegation consisting of South Down Assembly member Caitriona Ruane and the Assembly Group leader John O'Dowd today held talks with an SDLP delegation in Stormont.
Speaking after the meeting Sinn Féin Assembly member Caitriona Ruane said:
"Today's meeting with the SDLP focused primarily on the proposals from the two governments to re-establish the political institutions. Both parties agreed that our shared objective in the time ahead was to see a fully functioning Executive and fully functioning All-Ireland Bodies.
"Neither party was interested in a talking shop or shadow assembly. We agreed to remain in close contact and to meet regularly to discuss this and other issues in the time ahead." ENDS
