The head of the Catholic Church in Ireland says he enjoyed a meeting of minds with the Rev Ian Paisley during last year's groundbreaking talks.
Archbishop Sean Brady has told an audience in the US that the pair found common ground over poverty and the importance of the family during their Stormont summit.
Last October`s Belfast conference was their first formal discussion.
Archbishop Brady said: "It was a very positive experience.
We discovered that we shared the same views on many social issues including poverty, the importance of marriage and the family, the right to religious freedom, to faith-based education and so on."
"It was another example of how much is to be gained from simply meeting with others."
