The peace process in Northern Ireland is often seen as a cover for the events that led to the 1994 Commissional Irish Republican Army (IRA) ceasefire, the end of most of the violence of the riots, the 1998 Good Friday Agreement and the political developments that followed. [1] IRA TUAS Memo on the Nationalist Strategy of the Peace Process (1994) Provisional IRA declares a permanent ceasefire (August 1994) Loyalist paramilitary groups declare a ceasefire (October 1994) and Reynolds were already known for their former financial portfolios and work in the European Union. As national leaders, they discussed how to lay the groundwork for a successful peace agreement to end the unrest. The Bush administration has been less involved in relations with Northern Ireland. However, the Bush administration, through the first two special envoys, Richard Haass and Mitchell Reiss, had a considerable impact on Northern Ireland under the agreement. Both had a tough approach to Sinn Fein and a much better understanding of unionism than their predecessors. This understanding was decisive for the issue of dismantling and policing in 2005, achieved through the withdrawal of Sinn Fein fundraising visas and which contributed to the conclusion of the famous Sinn Fein-DUP agreement on which Northern Ireland now relies. Information, knowledge, memory – everything is now buried in peace. In Northern Ireland, the results of the vote on the deal were as follows: despite opposition from the British government, the US granted Gerry Adams a second visa to raise money in the US for the Sinn Fein party.

As a result, Sinn Fein became the richest party in Northern Ireland. During this period, the British government had discussed the unresolved closure of weapons, which hampered negotiations in Northern Ireland. Adams` visit to the White House helped move this process forward. President Clinton took a very pragmatic approach to the peace process and ended his hopes for all-party talks at the Whitehouse Investment Conference. His efforts led the Ulster Unionist Party to take an interest in the United States. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Belfast Agreement, better known as the Good Friday Agreement, signed in Northern Ireland on 10 April 1998. It effectively ended the unrest that ravaged the region for thirty years and established an inter-community consensus for peace and the future direction of the region. The agreement establishes a framework for the establishment and number of institutions in three “policy areas”. Protestants and Unionists were more divided. The moderate Unionist Party (UUP) criticised parts of the deal, while accepting its provisions.

In contrast, the conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) rejected the deal altogether. In 1994, discussions continued between the leaders of the two main Irish nationalist parties in Northern Ireland, John Hume of the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), and Gerry Adams of Sinn Féin (SF). These discussions resulted in a series of joint statements on how to end the violence.
