Gerry Adams responds to Mandelson resignation

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP, MLA said:

``It is a matter of public record that Peter Mandelson and Sinn Fein were in disagreement over many issues.  Notwithstanding that,  I wish him well for the future.

``I hope that the British Government is not distracted by the fall-out >from his resignation.

``This is a defining period in the search for a sustainable process towards a democratic peace settlement on this island.  And it requires a strategic approach by London, and particularly a very focused commitment by the British Prime Minister himself.''
