Adams welcomes IRA statement
Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP commenting on the IRA statement to be carried in tomorrow's edition of An Phoblacht/Republican News said:
``I welcome tonight's statement.
``While there are many difficulties it remains my firm view that none of these matters are intractable.
``What is required is focused political action.
``I agree with the IRA when they assert that peace making is a collective responsibility.
``This has been the lesson of successful peace processes and regrettably also of those that have failed.
``This issue of weapons should never have been allowed to become a pre-condition or a blockage on the rights and entitlements of citizens.
``It must be resolved politically.''
