H. CON. RES. 152
Expressing the sense of the Congress that all parties to the multiparty
peace talks regarding Northern Ireland should condemn violence and
fully integrate internationally recognized human rights standards and
adequately address outstanding human rights violations as part of the
H. CON. RES. 152
Whereas multiparty talks regarding Northern Ireland attended by representatives
of the British and Irish Governments and representatives elected from
political parties in Northern Ireland are underway for the first time
since the partition of Ireland in 1922 creating a momentous opportunity
for progress on human rights concerns;
Whereas human rights violations and the lack of accountability by those
responsible for such violations have been persistent features of the
conflict in Northern Ireland; and
Whereas more than 3,000 people have died and thousands more have been injured as
a result of the political violence in Northern Ireland since 1969: Now,
therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
(1) the Congress condemns the violence committed on all
sides of the conflict in Northern Ireland as illegal, unjust,
(2) the Congress commends the leadership in both the
British and Irish Governments and former United States Senator
George Mitchell, Independent Chairman of the multiparty talks,
for fostering a new environment in which human rights concerns
may be addressed and an agreement may be reached expeditiously
through inclusive talks with respect to Northern Ireland; and
(3) it is the sense of the Congress that--
(A) all parties should reject violence and work
diligently through democratic, peaceful means to reach
a just and lasting peace in Northern Ireland;
(B) human rights should be protected for all
citizens and any peace agreement in Northern Ireland
must recognize the state's obligation to protect human
rights in all circumstances; and
(C) there are a number of measures which can be
taken immediately that would remedy abusive human
rights policies and build confidence in the peace
process, such as acting upon the Standing Advisory
Commission on Human Rights (SACHR) report and
recommendations put forth by other human rights
Passed the House of Representatives March 18, 1998.
