DUP claim the IRA may be about to decommission

15/12/2004 - 20:05:56

The DUP leader Ian Paisley has revealed that confidential sources which have been accurate in the past have told him the IRA may be about to go ahead and decommission its weapons.

Mr Paisley has said however that unless this happens with independent witnesses and photographs, the rest of the two governments proposals that his party has signed up to will be at risk.

He was speaking at Hillsborough, County Down after talks with the Northern Secretary and Minister for Foreign Affairs.

“I want to make it clear that if the IRA does not perform it’s obligation as envisaged in the comprehensive agreement then it's refusal to meet these terms will have very serous consequence in respect of the DUP’s attitude to other elements of the comprehensive agreement.”
