Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill led a delegation to meet with the Irish Government in Dublin earlier.
Speaking afterwards, Michelle O’Neill said;
“We told the Taoiseach that urgency is required to conclude the Talks if we are to restore the Assembly in the coming weeks.
“We restated our commitment to achieving restoration of the Assembly.
“We agreed that key to any agreement is resolving the outstanding issues which lie at the heart of the Talks.
“We agree that the people of the North need and deserve good government, but that it must be one which is credible and sustainable.
She added, “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.”
