Irish PM holds separate talks with leaders of Northern Ireland parties

Arlene Foster, leader of the DUP, said that it "takes two to tango and we are ready to dance".

The Prime Minister has been widely criticised for trying to strike a "confidence and supply" deal with the DUP since losing her majority at the election.

"Not only do a huge majority of people in Northern Ireland want to see abortion made available to women and girls in the tragic circumstances of sexual crime or fatal foetal diagnosis, but they also want to see abortion decriminalised and dealt with through healthcare policy".

The DUP have a deadline of June 29 to get a deal done with Sinn Fein in order to restore order in Stormont.

Mrs Foster said that she hopes that talks on a Tory-DUP arrangement will conclude as soon as possible.

Sinn Féin's delegation today will be led by Gerry Adams, with the party's leader in the North Michelle O'Neill also set to attend.

The DUP, under Arlene Foster, has not yet struck a deal with the Conservatives that would allow a beleaguered Theresa May form a minority government in London.

The Good Friday Agreement or Belfast Agreement, was a major political development in the Northern Ireland peace process of the 1990s. I reaffirmed that a border up the middle of the Irish Sea was totally unacceptable and as unionists we would always work to retain the integrity of the United Kingdom and that is a goal we share with the Prime Minister.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will face an immediate leadership challenge from eurosceptic lawmakers in her party if she seeks to water down her plans for Brexit, the Sunday Telegraph reported, citing senior Conservative sources.

Ms Foster dismissed suggestions her deal with the Tories threatened the peace process.

That agreement assigns the British government the role of broker between Irish republicans and unionists, a role that Mr Adams said would be compromised if the government was in some way indebted politically to the DUP.

"What would happen then?"

It wants power devolved to the Northern Ireland Executive to lower corporation tax to compete for business with its low-tax neighbour the Republic of Ireland.

"I know people want to talk about soft Brexit, hard Brexit, all of these things but what we want to see is a sensible Brexit and one that works for everybody".

"One out of three voters backed the DUP in the election last week, but that does not mean we will not speak up at Westminster for the other two-thirds who didn't vote for us".

The former Northern Ireland First Minister said her meeting with Mr Varadkar was very good and that she was looking forward to a very positive relationship with the Irish premier.
