Agreement is now in sight: Alliance
9 March 1998

Speaking after the Alliance Party AGM in Portadown, North Down Councillor Stephen Farry has argued that an agreement in the Multi-Party Talks is now greater than ever.

Stephen Farry said:

“As we enter March, the final phase of the Talks has begun. There is now a really strong chance that there will be a political agreement by Easter.

“There are still some obstacles in the way.

“There is naturally much pessimism throughout the community about the chances of an agreement. This is not surprising: many of Northern Ireland’s politicians have let everybody down too many times in the past.

“We are now closer to a cross-community agreement than at any time since 1973.”
