Ulster Defense Association Weapons Decommissioning

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

We welcome the news in Belfast of the decommissioning of weapons by the Ulster Defense Association. This is a positive step toward securing a lasting peace in Northern Ireland. As I saw first-hand this fall, the people of Northern Ireland have traveled a long way together on the road to peace in the 11 years since the Good Friday Agreement was signed. But the journey is not over. That is why this announcement today is so important. I want to commend the work of General John de Chastelain and his colleagues in the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning, whose oversight and support was essential to the process, and reaffirm the commitment of the United States to supporting Northern Ireland in its progress towards a future of peace and prosperity.
