Ulster Unionist Leader, Robin Swann MLA, has stated that there is a limited timeframe within which a fair and balanced agreement can be reached.
Robin Swann MLA said:
“The mood music at the Leaders` roundtable meeting was a lot better than I expected. However, mood music alone won`t see these talks through to a positive conclusion.
“The onus is very firmly on the five parties to work positively to achieve a solution that restores the devolved institutions. The process needs to continue to be inclusive and it also needs to be very focused if it is to succeed. There is a limited timeframe within which a fair and balanced agreement can be reached. I believe that if generosity and respect are shown by all sides, it may be possible to achieve the positive outcome that the people of Northern Ireland want and deserve.”
