Adams urges Blair to build on hopes for peace

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams commenting on the visit to the Six Counties of British Prime Minister Tony Blair said:

``I hope that Mr. Blair will not repeat the mistakes of the John Major administration and that he will make it clear in his speech today that he is going to transform the present opportunity for peace into the reality of a peace settlement.''
