Plaid Cymru has said that it has entered into "constructive discussions" with the Labour Welsh Government to explore whether an agreement can be reached on "defined policy areas" and "governance arrangements".


Plaid said that that discussions with the Welsh Government concern "ways of building a more equal, just and democratic nation for all."


Plaid also said that should a formal agreement be reached, it will be subject to the party's "appropriate democratic processes."


In a statement, Chair of Plaid Cymru Alun Ffred Jones said: "As Wales prepares for a stronger future beyond the coronavirus pandemic and deals with the climate emergency, ongoing consequences of leaving the European Union, and Westminster’s undermining of devolution; it is more important than ever that political parties work together wherever they have common interests on behalf of the people of Wales."
