In a letter to the Irish and British governments and leaders of other political parties, Sinn Féin Northern leader Michelle O’Neill has proposed a formal resumption of the Stormont talks on Monday 28th August.
Michelle O’Neill said:
“With limited engagement since the talks concluded on 4th July, I am keen to formally re-engage at the earliest opportunity in order to re-establish an Executive and power sharing institutions on a proper and sustainable footing.
“Moreover, I do not believe there is much public appetite, or need, for another drawn-out phase of talks.
“In this context, and with an eagerness to resolve outstanding issues, I am also formally proposing that this round of talks be focused and time limited.”
