Initial response to proposals by two governments

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams in an initial comment on the proposals issued by the Dublin and London governments this evening has said that Sinn Fein ``will be examining this on the basis of whether it contains the necessary dynamic to move this process into meaningful and substantive negotiations which will lead to real political and constitutional change.

``Throughout the development and evolution of the peace process Sinn Fein has played a pivitol role. Since its collapse we have continued to demonstrate the flexibility and constructive attitude which has marked our contribution to the search for peace. Our absolute commitment is to restore the peace process and through inclusive negotiations to achieve a peace settlement acceptable to all the people of this island.

``Sinn Fein will come to these proposals positively and constructively .''
