Sinn Féin’s finance spokesperson, Pearse Doherty TD has said yesterday’s joint statement from Enda Kenny and Angela Merkel lacked clarification.

The Donegal South West TD stated: “The point of Enda Kenny making contact with the German Chancellor today was to seek clarification of her Friday statement regarding retrospection of the arrangement whereby the ESM could re-capitalise banks directly.

“Clearly, Enda Kenny achieved no such clarification, but just a reiteration of the statement of 29 June 2012, which promises nothing more than a examination of ‘the sustainability of the adjustment programme’.

“Tonight’s joint communiqué clearly shows that no progress has been made in dealing with our debt, which is unsustainable. The sooner the government admits that and starts to act in the interests of the Irish people, the better.”
