Coveney calls for North deal to 'involve all five parties'

20 June 2017, 10:31 | Terri Saunders

"I think there is a sense of urgency here that Northern Ireland needs its own voice, in the context of Brexit in particular, as well as so many other issues that need to be resolved, and that without that voice people in Northern Ireland will be disadvantaged in a major way and will be essentially relying on others to make the case for them", he said.

"Not only do a huge majority of people in Northern Ireland want to see abortion made available to women and girls in the tragic circumstances of sexual crime or fatal foetal diagnosis, but they also want to see abortion decriminalised and dealt with through healthcare policy".

"We will go in to speak with Sinn Fein again on Monday morning to try and get that set up as quickly as possible, because devolution works and works for everybody in Northern Ireland".

She said: "We remain fully committed to making the institutions work".

The remarks came after warnings by the nationalist Sinn Fein and SDLP and the cross-community Alliance Party that a deal with the DUP would undermine the Government's attempts to restore the powersharing executive at Stormont. "I think it is all very doable".

Gerry Adams led a delegation to Government Buildings including Ms O'Neill, Sinn Fein deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald and newly-elected Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

In both meetings, all leaders agreed on the urgent need to re-establish the Northern Ireland Executive, believing that the June 29 deadline for completing negotiations could be met, according a statement from the Irish government.

The talks are taking place as the DUP and Tories attempt to strike a separate deal to prop up British Prime Minister Theresa May's minority government.

"It continues and when the deal is done, it will be done", a senior source in the Conservative Party said yesterday.

Ms Foster dismissed suggestions her deal with the Tories threatened the peace process.

"I want to renew the close bond and strong relations that exist between Ireland and the United Kingdom".

"What would happen then?

They can't have it both ways, it has to be dealt with sensibly", she said.

Asked if his party favoured a hard or soft Brexit, Mr Hamilton said the preference was for a "sensible Brexit".

Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, with special responsibility for Brexit, Simon Coveney said he welcomed the negotiations, which are not only important for the European Union and Britain but "are one of the most important set of negotiations in the recent history of our country".
