Time for DUP to come on board peace process

19 October, 2005

Responding to the latest report by the IMC released in Dublin this afternoon, Sinn Féin MP for Newry & Armagh Conor Murphy said:

" The IMC were established outside the terms of the Good Friday Agreement. In our view the IMC have no positive or constructive role to play in the peace process. In fact, they have provided the pretext for political discrimination against democratically elected politicians.

" The IRA has fulfilled all of the commitments made in the historic statement of July 28th. They have addressed unionist concerns and removed any further excuse for non-engagement.

" The DUP must now decide if they want to come on board the peace process and the two governments must urgently address the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement including the early restoration of the political institutions." ENDS
