Maskey - Onus is on Governments to publish Joint Declaration
Commenting on the announcement that the IRA leadership have closed on a statement of their intentions and passed it onto the two governments, Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey said:
"I want to welcome this evenings announcement from the IRA that the two governments have received a statement of their intentions. This is clearly an important development.
"The onus is now on the two governments to publish their Joint Declaration. Sinn Féin would like to see all statements issued.
"I can confirm that Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness acted as a conduit for the two governments with the IRA. "ENDS
