Speaking in response to comments made today by Julian Smith, British Secretary of State to the North, Sinn Féin’s Michelle O’Neill MLA said:
“Sinn Féin stand ready and committed to restoring the Assembly.
“But any restoration must ensure the Assembly is sustainable, credible and has the confidence of the public.
“The key to any agreement is resolving the outstanding issues which lie at the heart of the talks.
“Sinn Féin stands ready to re-enter talks in the coming weeks and will work with all parties and both governments to reach a fair agreement.”
