Agreement is possible - Gerry Adams

6 October, 2006

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP, Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP and Party Chairperson Mary Lou McDonald MEP, this morning met the British Prime Minister Tony Blair at Chequers this morning.

Speaking afterwards Mr Adams said:

"The focus of our discussions today was the restoration of the political institutions. Mr Blair told us that it is his firm resolve to see working institutions in place by November 24th.

"There is no more important work in the time ahead for the two governments and the parties than reaching agreement. Sinn Féin believes that a deal is possible on all of the issues.

"It will become clear whether or not the DUP are up for an agreement. If they are, the opportunity is there - the way has been cleared." ENDS
