All quotes by Jeremy Corbyn on Northern Ireland

The Labour government of 1997 helped bring in the historic Good Friday agreement, the basis of which was a recognition of the differing cultural histories and values of Northern Ireland. It stood the test of time and it's still there. We have a devolved administration. We should recognise that that peace was achieved by a lot of bravery both in the unionist and in the nationalist community.feedback

I condemn all acts of violence in Northern Ireland from wherever they came. I spent the whole of the 1980s representing a constituency with a large number of Irish people in it, we wanted peace, we wanted justice, we wanted a solution. The ceasefire, the first ceasefire, helped to bring that about, and bring about those talks, which were representative of all sections of opinion in Northern Ireland.feedback

We have devolved administration in Northern Ireland and I think we should recognise that that peace was achieved by a lot of bravery, both in the unionist community as well as in the nationalist community - people that walked a very difficult extra mile when they were under pressure from their communities not to do so - both republicans and unionists walked that extra mile and brought us the Good Friday Agreement. And I think we should use this election as thanking those that brought about the Good Friday Agreement.feedback

Martin played an immeasurable role in bringing about peace in Northern Ireland, and it's that peace we all want to endure.feedback
