Us And Good Friday Agreement

Less is mentioned is the support given by President George W. Bush`s administration to the „peace dividend“ in the crucial years following the agreement. Richard Haas, appointed emissary by Bush, was active during this period for the dismantling of arms and then returned to Northern Ireland to lead cross-party discussions on the unresolved issues of the peace process. This conference takes the form of regular and frequent meetings between The British and Irish ministers to promote cooperation between the two governments at all levels. On issues not left to Northern Ireland, the Irish government can present views and proposals. All decisions of the Conference are taken by mutual agreement between the two governments and the two governments, in order to make resolute efforts to resolve the differences between them. The agreement contains a complex set of provisions in a number of areas, including: issues of sovereignty, civil and cultural rights, arms dismantling, demilitarization, justice and police were at the heart of the agreement. The agreement was reached between the British and Irish governments as well as eight northern Ireland political parties or groups. Three were representative of unionism: the Ulster Unionist Party, which had led unionism in Ulster since the early 20th century, and two small parties linked to loyalist paramilitaries, the Progressive Unionist Party (linked to the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and the Ulster Democratic Party (the political wing of the Ulster Defence Association (UDA). Two of them have been widely described as nationalists: the Social Democratic and Labour Party and Sinn Féin, the Republican party affiliated with the Provisional Republican Army.

U.S. Senator George J. Mitchell was sent by U.S. President Bill Clinton to chair the talks between parties and groups.

The participants in the agreement were composed of two sovereign states (the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland), with armed forces and police forces involved in the riots. Two political parties, Sinn Féin and the Progressive Unionist Party (PUP), were linked to paramilitary organisations: the IRA (Commissional Irish Republican Army) and the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). The Ulster Democratic Party (UDP), associated with the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), had withdrawn from the talks three months earlier. Nancy Pelosi, a spokeswoman for the U.S.
