McGuinness offer to Weir and Armitage
Sinn Fein Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP has said that he would be willing to meet with UUP members Peter Weir and Pauline Armitage in order to impress upon them the magnitude of the IRA initiative and attempt to allay the fears and concerns that they have.
Mr. McGuinness said:
``In light of Peter Weir and Pauline Armitage meeting with the IICD this afternoon in a bid to ally concerns over last weeks historic move by the IRA it is only right that I make myself available to meet with them also.
``Sinn Fein officials have contacted Pauline Armitage personally and Peter Weir's office offering to meet with them to impress upon them the magnitude of the IRA initiative and attempt to allay any fears they might have.
``It is important that those of us with political mandates work together in order to advance the peace process and build upon last weeks IRA move.''
