McCain's hard line on IRA…

THE Sindo has published an extract from a speech delivered to the American Ireland Fund’s 13th national gala by Republican Senator John McCain. McCain said: “The elements of a just peace in Northern Ireland are attainable. But the IRA must disband, Sinn Fein must forswear ties to any paramilitary remnants, and the Democratic Unionist Party must show a real willingness to share power. These steps, which will enable an end to violence and the restoration of democratic institutions, are simple – but difficult.”
