Negotiations: a complicated choreography

Gerry Adams has suggested ‘an imaginative gesture’ may be forthcoming from the IRA. It is conditional on the British and Irish governments ‘completing’ the full terms of Belfast Agreement, as Sinn Fein see it, though the Daily Telegraph is convinced that some of these moves are already signed off and in the pipeline.

For the Unionists part in all this, there is apparently not much they can do. David Trimble has told the Irish Independent’s London editor that Sinn Fein must show their hand before they can expect any reciprocal move from him; a strategy that is getting him a lot heat from his Unionist rivals.
