BELFAST, June 13 The leader of Northern
Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, Arlene Foster, said on
Tuesday that talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May to
support a new government were going well and she hoped to
successfully conclude them soon.
May, who failed to secure an outright majority after last
week's election and is aiming to strike a deal with the DUP to
pass her legislative programme, made no comment as she left her
Downing Street office.
"Discussions are going well with the government and we hope
soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion,"
Foster said on Twitter after more than an hour of talks.
