The DUP leader said he could not agree to any of the papers on the talks table and claimed matters seemed to be moving backwards on flags. "Nobody is throwing the towel in at this stage. We are just saying there is not a set of proposals that we can support, agree to or recommend," he said.
"The more excitable amongst us should cool their jets," he said.
However, yesterday, none of the parties were prepared to sign up to the proposals as they stood.
