McGuinness meets with IICD

After a meeting today with General de Chastelain and his colleagues in the IICD Sinn Fein Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness MP said:

``We welcomed today's meeting with General de Chastelain and his colleagues.

``It was a good meeting, frank and constructive.

``The fact that the IICD met today with all of the pro-Agreement parties underlines the reality that there is a collective responsibility on all of the participants to help resolve the decommissioning issue.

``Sinn Fein has long argued that the IICD should be allowed to get on with that task, and the political parties should get on with the job of establishing the political institutions and creating the conditions in which real progress on decommissioning can be achieved.

``We support that approach.''ENDS
