Talks aimed at resolving the long-running beef dispute will take place tomorrow.

Agriculture Minister Michael Creed will convene the discussions, he says all stakeholders must take part with "a view to finding an urgent solution to the current dispute."

Meat Industry Ireland has confirmed it will take part.

The body, which represents meat processors in Ireland pulled out of discussions which were due to take place on Monday.

It said it couldn't take part in talks while farmers continued to blockade processing plants.

MII says its members are "committed to working constructively to resolve the situation, and have always been ready to participate in talks, but only when negotiations could take place in good faith."

Agriculture Minister Michael Creed says "I have engaged intensively with all sides and have a deep understanding of the outstanding issues, and the emotion, involved.  I expect all sides to recognise the urgency of the current situation, and to enter talks in good faith and with a firm intention to reach agreement tomorrow."
