Northern Ireland

Asked if the current situation had reached a stalemate, the PMOS said we were first of all being realistic about the fact that the robbery was carried out by the IRA, and therefore, about the subsequent implications of it. The PMOS said what he thought was striking about the Press Conference yesterday by the two Prime Ministers was the complete openness of it, and the complete agreement by the two governments and security forces. Secondly, we were talking to all the parties, including Sinn Fein, and listening to ideas. Whilst there may not be movement within the next few days, people should not assume there would not be continuing discussions and a desire to keep moving forward somehow. The Prime Minister yesterday had said the sole obstacle to moving forward was IRA activity on an inclusive basis.
