US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is visiting Northern Ireland as part of a five day tour of Europe. She is seen waving to by-standers as she leaves the Europa Hotel.
Accompanied by police motorcycles, she made her way through rush hour traffic to Stormont along Prince of Wales Avenue to her first engagement of the day.
Her first stop was to have individual meetings with the First and Deputy First Ministers, Martin McGuinness and Peter Robinson, at Castle Buildings.
Following talks, the secretary of state gave a press conference at which she paid tribute to the people of Northern Ireland for their "remarkable achievements" in working for peace.
Hillary Clinton then went on to give a speech in the assembly chamber. Here, she is seen being welcomed by Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly Willie Hay before being introduced to MLAs and other invited guests.
In her speech, the secretary of state said that the Obama administration and the United States were committed to helping people in Northern Ireland reach peace and that the issue of devolution of policing and justice was a decision for the assembly.
After leaving Stormont, she made her way to Queen's University in Belfast where she held discussions with local business chiefs and gave a press conference to waiting journalists.
Her final appointment of the day was to officially open the refurbished Belfast City Hall. She is pictured here with the current Lord Mayor of Belfast, Naomi Long.
