Full text of Irish Republican Army (IRA) Statement on its meetings with the IICD
9 August 2001

Received by An Phoblacht (Republican News).


"On 8 March 2001 the IRA leadership re-established contact with the IICD the Independent International Commission on Disarmament. Since then the IRA representative has met with the IICD eight times.

As a result of these discussions we can confirm that the IRA leadership has agreed a scheme with the IICD which will put IRA arms completely and verifiably beyond use.

We note the ongoing attempts in some quarters to prevent progress. They should not be permitted to succeed. Our representative will continue to meet with the IICD. The IRA leadership will continue to monitor political developments."

P O'Neill, Irish Republican Publicity Bureau, Dublin.
