Making Politics Work

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP responding to Senator George Mitchell's statement said:

``We are encouraged by Senator Mitchell's positive assessment of the review process which is clear evidence of progress.

``We share his increasing confidence that the review process has the potential to achieve a resolution of the current impasse in the peace process.

``We welcome his assessment that the institutions should be established at the earliest possible date. The central role of General de Chastelain's Commission is also underlined.

``This review was established to resolve the crisis in the peace process by ensuring the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement in all its aspects.

``That is the only context for addressing all of the outstanding issues.

``In short this review and the Good Friday Agreement are about making politics work.

``All of us need to be mindful of this in the days and weeks ahead.''
