Northern Ireland's DUP says talks with Conservatives to continue in London

Arlene Foster and Theresa May have worked together behind the scenes on things they agree on in the past and in some ways some areas of the Conservative party mirror aspects of the DUP.

"Theresa May needs to cut a deal and the parties in Northern Ireland, I think, want to see their institutions restored".

There has been "slower progress" in talks between the Conservatives and DUP, with an agreement unlikely to be announced on Wednesday.

May, however, expressed confidence about getting the speech passed, even if a deal is not reached with the DUP before the state opening of Parliament.

It was thought to have been postponed in order for measures agreed with the DUP to be included.

"And if that wasn't enough, calling an unnecessary general election purely for the self interest of the Conservative Party and having mucked that campaign up they are now putting the country in hock to the DUP".

"We are working on a series of fronts and we are working very, very hard to deliver good government for Northern Ireland and good government for the United Kingdom", he said.

The party brought the name of the late Martin McGuinness into the talks yesterday by handing over a letter.

Gerry Adams said Sinn Féin had told Mrs May "very directly" she was in breach of the Good Friday Agreement.

Sinn Fein's Stormont leader Michelle O'Neill has said she will raise the issue with Mrs May in face-to-face talks in London on Thursday.

The Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), the Ulster Unionists and the Alliance Party - which all failed to win any seats in the general election - said they would also meet May.

By forming a government with the DUP, many commentators have argued the Conservatives would undermine this arrangement and risk the peace process. "They can't have it both ways, it has to be dealt with sensibly", she said.

Speaking on The View programme on Thursday night, Mr Smith said he sensed a "willingness" among the parties to come to an agreement before the deadline on 29 June.

Talks restarted on Monday in Belfast, under Britain's Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire.

"We remain committed to a comprehensive outcome to the talks and one that, critically, sees the re-establishment of our institutions".

"We made the case to her that we would oppose any deal that undermined the Good Friday Agreement", he said.
