Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has said the visit of the US Secretary of State, Mrs Hillary Clinton, to Northern Ireland is a "very important occasion".

He told the BBC's Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson that "the level of support from the White House, the US State Department, Capitol Hill, for the peace process over the course of the last 15 years has been absolutely tremendous."

Mrs Clinton is visiting Belfast as part of her four day tour of Europe.
