de Brún to attend conflict resolution conference in Berlin

7 March, 2008


Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún will lead a Sinn Féin delegation to a conflict settlement conference in Berlin today.

Speaking before the event the Sinn Fein MEP said,

"Raymond Mc Cartney and I will travel to Berlin to attend the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation conference on "negotiating conflict settlements; lessons learnt and challenges.

"We shall engage with others who are in the process of emerging from conflict and with key strategists from South Africa to discuss mapping the field of negotiations and conflict resolution.

"I believe that Ireland has a lot to offer the world in terms of lessons about what is involved in trying to achieve for peace and that Sinn Féin's work to create an equal and just settlement can in many ways be an example to others.

"A lot has changed and Sinn Fein want to see the momentum maintained and for others to engage, debate and interact with us to find a way towards a better world." Críoch
