DUP leader Arlene Foster speaks to the media in the Great Hall at Parliament Buildings Stormont

Northern Ireland Secretary of State James Brokenshire is to meet with the political parties later today, 04 September, to discuss restoring a power-sharing Executive.

"It's the first time I've heard a leader of the DUP say that unionism has nothing to fear from facilitating and supporting the use of the Irish language in Northern Ireland".

Sinn Fein was responding to DUP leader Arlene Foster's appeal late Thursday to rejoin the devolved government while the two sides continue negotiations "in parallel" to resolve long-term differences.

She told party members: "We have nothing to fear from the Irish language, nor is it any threat to the Union".

She added: "I am not going to be prescriptive but we do not believe that there can be a prolonged set of talks".

For the first time in a decade, the region faces direct rule from Westminster.

He will meet with the DUP, Sinn Féin, Alliance, the SDLP and UUP. Certainly from our part we do. I have also heard from those within the Unionist community who hear others speaking about respect whilst at the same time they engage in a campaign to denigrate and demonise any and all aspects of our British identity in Northern Ireland or insult the Ulster Scots community.

"The DUP's refusal to afford Irish language speakers in the North rights which speakers of Welsh, Gaelic and Irish enjoy across these islands is shameful and speaks more of our divided past than of the shared future Sinn Féin wishes to see".

Outstanding issues in dispute between the parties include legal protection for the Irish language and dealing with violence from Northern Ireland's past. Now we stand on the cusp of a new century for Northern Ireland.

She said, "We want to make the institutions work".
