IRA arms move "momentous": Adams

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has described the IRA's latest act of decommissioning as "momentous".

His comments were the first indication from a senior Sinn Féin figure that the scale of the IRA's latest decommissioning act was much more substantial than previous events.

However, Gerry Adams warned that the governments would have to fulfil the commitments they had given to republicans which had made it possible to persuade the IRA to put more weapons beyond use.

He said the IRA and Sinn Féin had been given commitments before Tuesday's dramatic moves on decommissioning. The Sinn Féin chief, who met informally with David Trimble on Sunday morning as the two men were engaged in media briefings, said republicans were angry at the latest turn of events.

"There's huge anger and frustration within republicanism that republicans have done all of this, and had nothing in return," he said.
