Hain confident for 'way forward' at talks


06 February 2006 11:02

The Northern Secretary, Peter Hain, has said he is confident that a way forward can be found at talks which get under way at Hillsborough in Co Down today.

The discussions, involving Northern Ireland's political parties and the Irish and British governments, will explore ways of restoring a power-sharing assembly at Stormont.

Mr Hain said all the parties had put forward proposals and all sides accepted that the current state of political paralysis was simply not sustainable.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dermot Ahern, has arrived at Hillsborough for the talks.

The Assembly has been closed since autumn 2002.
