Adams on IRA statement
Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP, MLA commenting on today s IRA statement said:
``No one can be surprised by this latest development.
``I believe the IRA proposal was a very genuine one but more important than that it was endorsed by the IICD.
``For the unionists to reject the IICD determination, and for the British government to do what it did is hardly the stuff of peace making.
``I appreciate the universal welcome that the IICD determination received, most notably from the Taoiseach, but also across the spectrum of progressive opinion.
``It is clear that this issue will only be resolved in the context of political progress. The British government should know that by now.''
