Adams criticises DUP's refusal to share power

Republican and Unionist leaders today travelled to Downing Street in London to meet with the British Prime Minister.

DUP leader Ian Paisley presented Tony Blair with 64 pages of fresh demands ahead of the restoration of devolved government to the North.

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams described the talks as crucially important. Emerging from Number Ten, he contrasted the DUP's refusal to share power with the blind eye being turned to loyalist criminals.

“The DUP has no problem sitting on commissions and other bodies with the representatives of Unionist paramilitaries which are currently engaged in campaigns of violence and yet appears to be casting about for excuses not to be part of the institutions which they are mandated to serve in,” he said.
