“The Good Friday Agreement is a symbol of hope throughout the world and I look forward to meeting with the panellists and sharing experiences.
“Peace making is on not a one-off event, it’s a process and we have much to do to fully realise the transformative potential of our agreements.
“The conference is extremely timely as our agreements, international law, progress and the political process is held hostage by in a Tory party leadership battle.
“The only way forward is reaching and honouring agreements and respecting the democratic choice of the people to establish government today and the right of the people to determine their constitutional future.”
