Let us join talks, says Adams.
"It is not too late to rekindle the hope which led to the ceasefire," said the Sinn Fein president. "New initiatives are needed."
Sinn Fein was excluded from the talks, which are due to restart tomorrow week, after the IRA ceasefire collapsed. But Adams blamed British policy and Unionist intransigence. He claimed that the negotiations now lack credibility.
Meanwhile Unionist leader David Trimble called for mediation with extreme loyalist groups over a death threat to paramilitary "hard man" Billy Wright.
UVF terrorists in Armagh told Wright to get out of Ireland by last night, and may kill him if he does not leave. Security chiefs fear a feud between armed factions.
The loyalist marching season ended peacefully yesterday. Protestant members of the Royal Black Institution marched in Newry, south Belfast and Dunloy. Nationalists staged protests, but armed RUC police barred the loyalists' way.
