Mr Dodds said, “We welcome the fresh optimism and positivity coming from the new Prime Minister.
Already we have been able to have constructive conversations with the new Prime Minister and look forward to continuing these to ensure that the shared vision we have as unionist parties means we have a Conservative and Unionist Government in place rather than the alternative of a Corbyn government.
Both Boris Johnson and the DUP share the vision that the Union must be strengthened, that Brexit must be delivered and that Stormont must be restored as quickly as possible knowing the DUP would set it up tomorrow but that Sinn Fein continue its policy of delay and boycott.”
