Northern Ireland talks

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the Prime Minister would be meeting the Taoiseach for talks in Downing Street on Wednesday in relation to Northern Ireland peace talks. We would not be providing a running commentary during the week, but equally nobody should underestimate how important a week this was and nobody should mistake our silence for lack of activity. Quite the reverse. Asked if it was fair to assume that because the Prime Minister and Taoiseach were meeting that they had now at least between them met all the major parties involved in the talks the PMOS said that we had been in very intensive talks with all the major players and that we would continue to do so. There was an awful lot of activity going on behind the scenes and sometimes our silence was in inverse proportions to how important and significant matters were, as may be the case here.
