McGuinness meets Haass in London

Sinn Fein Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP today met with US Ambassador Richard Haass in London. Speaking after the meeting Mr. McGuinness said:

``The meeting with Ambassador Haass today in London was a good engagement. There is a growing awareness that the political vacuum we are currently in is very dangerous and has to be filled with political momentum. Central to that is the holding of the Assembly elections, cancelled twice already by the British government.

``The US Administration is clearly aware of the need to establish such momentum.''
