DUP still not in talks process - Murphy
Sinn Féin MP Conor Murphy said this morning that three weeks into preparatory talks we still have no credible talks process.
Conor Murphy said:
“The First and Deputy First Minister and their advisors do meet on regular basis on a range of issues.
“But as we enter the third week of the preparatory talks which the the DUP called for they have yet to attend a plenary and have had no meetings with Sinn Féin as part of the current talks process.
“A plenary should be convened immediately to start a credible talks process.
“Last week Sinn Féin circulated a paper proposing agenda items to the other parties and the two governments.
“Despite this we are in the third week of preparatory talks and we still have no agenda, no timetable, no programme of work or no structure for chairing.”
