A DUP delegation is travelling to the United States today to meet a number of leading politicians.
The group, which is being led by Peter Robinson, is hoping to broaden the understanding of unionism in the US and convince key figures that the DUP wants to become a party of government.
In Washington the delegation will meet Ted Kennedy, Hilary Clinton, Chris Dodd and highly influential Republican Jim Walsh.
When it travels to New York on Wednesday, Peter Robinson will speak at a function hosted by Bill Flynn, a US businessman who has played a significant role in the peace process.
