Sinn Fein says will oppose any deal that undermines peace deal

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

A Conservative Party source said it was time for the government to get on with its business.

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

It is not yet clear whether European Union withdrawal talks, which had been due to start on Monday, will also now go ahead on Wednesday, although Brexit Secretary David Davis has said they will start "next week".

"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".

It has positioned itself against republican parties like Sinn Fein, which believes that Northern Ireland should be a part of the Republic of Ireland, bringing the whole island under a single government.

The party said it would oppose any deal between Theresa May and the Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland that undermines the 1997 peace deal.

During the appearance, Ms O'Neill said: 'We made very clear to the prime minister that any deal between herself and the DUP can not undermine the Good Friday agreement.

Gerry Adams led a delegation to Government Buildings including Ms O'Neill, Sinn Fein deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald and newly-elected Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

"It can't be a deal that affects and infects the talks process", he said.

"We know each other and we understand each other", she said. Sinn Fein and others have argued that any deal in which the DUP formed part of a United Kingdom government would worsen the current situation.

With negotiations between the two parties ongoing, and a deal to form a minority government reportedly 95 per cent complete, an agreement is expected to be reached next week.

Ulster Unionist leader Robin Swann rejected the call for an independent talks chair to replace Secretary of State James Brokenshire.

Talks with the DUP broke up on Tuesday night without an agreement, but Mrs May said the discussions had been "productive".

He added: "If the DUP imagines it can wind back the clock, with a Tory side deal or not, and re-establish the institutions without adherence to equality and rights, then the DUP is indeed living in a fool´s paradise".

We've set out very clearly the fact that her government is in default of the Good Friday Agreement and successor agreements.
