Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Governments must make it clear to DUP that process will go on

13 June, 2005


Sinn Féin MP Conor Murphy said that the Irish and British governments needed to make it clear to the DUP in their discussions this week that running away from the politics of the peace process would not result in the continued stalling of the process of change and the continued denial of basic rights and entitlements.

Mr Murphy said:

"It is welcome that the Irish government is to hold discussions later this week with the DUP leadership. However it is vital that both governments make it clear to the DUP that any running away from the politics of the peace process would not result in them stalling further the process of change.

"They also must make clear that there will be no dilution of the Good Friday Agreement. Any progress will be based firmly in the core principles of that Agreement. The Agreement is about delivering basic rights and entitlements for the people. These rights and entitlements cannot continue to be denied because the DUP refuses to engage." ENDS
