17 October, 2006


Sinn Féin National Chairperson Mary Lou McDonald MEP and West Tyrone MLA Barry McElduff will this morning undertake a series of briefings with over twenty foreign embassies at the European Parliament in Brussels.   This morning's briefings have been orgainsed by Sinn Féin's European Department in order to provide embassies with an up to date briefing on current developments in the peace process.   Speaking this morning Ms McDonald said:   "Today's series of embassy meetings provide Sinn Féin with an opportunity to brief national governments from across the world on the latest developments in the peace process. It is part of Sinn Féin's wider engagement with the international community. The fact that over twenty embassies have confirmed their attendance, including representatives from South Africa, Italy, Cuba and the Czech Republic is an indication of the level of interest in Ireland and the continuing peace process at an international level.   "There is a tremendous amount of good will to see the process succeed and it is essential that we build upon this in the time ahead."
