Response to Taoiseach and British Prime Minister

Responding to the comments of the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair Sinn Fein negotiator Gerry Kelly said:

``The terms of the Good Friday Agreement were agreed upon when the negotiations concluded three years and three months ago. Since then we have had different talks about implementing the Good Friday Agreement. This is what Weston Park was about.

``We have consistently sought a strategic plan to achieve the implementation of the Agreement. The two governments said after Weston Park that they would deliver this.

``I would have preferred to see this plan today.  However, we will wait and see until we receive the plan next week.''
