Irish, British PMs to meet to talk Brexit, Northen Ireland crisis

He held a series of bilateral meetings with the parties yesterday and said that there was a desire to restore the power-sharing institutions.

Grainne Teggart, Campaign Manager for Amnesty International in Northern Ireland, said: "Today's results confirm what we have long known: that an overwhelming majority favour reform of our inhumane abortion laws".

Addressing the Communist Party of Britain's executive committee, he declared that the DUP priority would be to gain more public money and reduce corporation tax on business profits to serve its own narrow interests in northern Ireland.

However, Minister Coveney has said that as Ireland is one of the 27 European Union member states, "we will be negotiating from a position of strength". "You don't need border posts, you don't need to stop people; of course you would back that up with the occasional physical checks if you felt that that was needed", says the DUP Brexit spokesman, Sammy Wilson.

Mr Coveney met all five main political parties and Secretary of State James Brokenshire in what was his first involvement in the process since replacing Charlie Flanagan at the head of the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin last week.

But Stormont parties have a June 29 deadline to end the impasse and reach consensus on re-establishing a devolved administration in the region.

A DUP source confirmed negotiations were "ongoing" and said they were looking to deliver "a more compassionate style of government for the whole of the UK".

If I wanted to ask questions about that investigation, I'd ask those of [deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein. Sessions refused to commit to testifying in the future in closed session to answer these or other questions.

"And there's work to be done to find middle ground in some of those areas and to accommodate the concerns of people while understanding the political obstacles that other parties may have in terms of some of the issues that are still under discussion".

They told me the United Kingdom would vote Remain, they said Theresa May would win a commanding majority, now they tell me that the deal with the Democratic Unionist Party is essential for our national stability.

DUP MLA Simon Hamilton also struck a positive tone following the first round-table plenary session of a talks process that started last week.

The subsequent election in March saw the DUP take the most seats in the assembly, but their 28 was just one more than Sinn Féin.

Declan Kearney, the party's chairman, said a DUP focus on Ms Foster's future role at Stormont "is completely misdirected and premature".

"On reaching such an agreement we will make sure that the details of that are made public so that people can see exactly what that agreement is based on", she said.
