Sinn Fein meet UUP and SDLP

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP and Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP will hold separate meetings this evening with the UUP and SDLP. Senator George Mitchell will be present at both meetings.

Speaking as he entered Castle Buildings for the meetings Mr. Adams said:

``At the beginning of the review process I expressed my confidence that if the political will existed we could succeed in ending the current crisis and implement the Good Friday Agreement.

``The widespread view among nationalists and republicans at this time is the UUP does now have the political will to implement the Agreement. On the contrary, the No camp now appears to be in control of policy and decision making within the UUP.

``Despite this we are determined to do our best. Sinn Fein is giving 100% in our efforts to find a resolution to the crisis.''
