The man chairing inter-party talks designed to resolve issues over parades, flags and Northern Ireland's past, has said he has a "limited but ambitious" agenda.

Dr Richard Haass arrived in Belfast on Tuesday to begin the talks.

He said there had been real progress in Northern Ireland since the Good Friday Agreement, but "there is still a real need to move things forward".
