Following the IRA cessation, the British government failed to honour their commitment to hold all-party talks. Under international pressure, 15 months after the IRA cessation, the British government agreed to a twin track approach, which had as its objective the removal of pre-conditions to all-party talks. The Mitchell International Body was established to tackle the arms issue while the political track was to prepare for inclusive talks. Despite our grave reservations Sinn Féin engaged positively in the twin tracks process. This is our submission to the Mitchell Body.
