Another Step To Peace:More Decommissioning Up The North

 

Updated : Jun 18, 2009

Loyalist paramilitary groups in the North could be on the verge of decommissioning their weapons, it was claimed today.

The paramilitary Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and Ulster Defence Association (UDA) have been under pressure for some time to begin dumping their guns after the IRA's decision to dispose of their weapons four years ago.

It is understood General John de Chastelain, head of the decommissioning body which oversaw the IRA process of disarmament, is in Belfast and has met senior loyalists.

A spokesman for the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning (IICD) said: "We have no comment at this stage other than we expect to be reporting to the government at the end of August."

Ulster Unionist Party leader Reg Empey said: "This is something that we have been working on for the last few years and it shows the progress that Northern Ireland has made.

"Although the timing is somewhat later than we had hoped, we do welcome this move as the way forward and we will be working on the ground to ensure that it is completed.

"This is another piece of the jigsaw - this will see Northern Ireland becoming the place in which we all want to live."
