UK PM May talks to N.Irish leaders about restoring executive- spokesman

LONDON, May 13 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to the leaders of Northern Irish parties on Monday about talks to try to restore a devolved government in the province, her spokesman said.

The British-run province has been without a devolved executive for more than two years since Irish nationalists Sinn Fein withdrew from the compulsory power-sharing government with the pro-British Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan, Editing by Elizabeth Piper)
