No terrorist weapons have yet been decommissioned. In signing up to the Political Agreement, the Government, along with the Government of the Republic of Ireland and all the parties in talks, reaffirmed their commitment to the total disarmament of all paramilitary organisations and confirmed their intention to use any influence they may have to achieve the decommissioning of all paramilitary arms within two years of an endorsement of the agreement in the referendums.
