Joint Statement from Sinn Féin and the PUP - 'future of community relations' in Foyle

18 September, 2006

In a joint statement on the future of community relations Foyle Constituency Representatives of Sinn Féin and the PUP today said:

"We are a society that is moving away from conflict and who share a common humanity

Conflict has no place in our future - a shared future that is based upon equality for all our people and a genuine process of reconciliation between differing traditions and cultural identities.

A future where our common experience of poverty and sectarian division is ended.

We must be confident in building a better future for ourselves and our children.

We must show leadership and not be afraid to take risks.

In this regard our two Parties have committed to and embarked upon a sustained dialogue to develop initiatives based upon common and agreed community issues that will function within and between our communities."

Councillor Lynn Fleming, Sinn Féin Leslie Mitchell PUP
