LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will talk to Northern Ireland’s Sinn Fein in the coming days about efforts to restore the region’s devolved government, May’s spokeswoman said on Friday.

Representatives of Irish nationalists Sinn Fein and the pro-British Democratic Unionists resumed talks this week in their first attempt in more than a year to restore the government, which has been frozen since early 2017.

May also discussed the talks with the Democratic Unionist Party on Thursday.
