DUP: 'Unionists want entirely new peace deal'

The Democratic Unionist Party has reiterated its plan to press for the complete re-negotiation of the Good Friday Agreement during the upcoming review of the 1998 peace deal.

Party spokesman Gregory Campbell said yesterday that nothing less than an entirely new agreement would be enough for unionists.

He said almost two-thirds of the unionist electorate had voted in favour of the DUP’s re-negotiation policy and those democratically expressed wishes had to be heard and seriously addressed.

Sinn Féin and the SDLP have vowed to resist any unionist effort to re-negotiate the agreement, which ended 30 years of violence in the North.

The upcoming review of the document is expected to begin on January 29.
