(iii) to make decisions by mutual agreement on enforcement policies in each legal order in the relevant areas under the jurisdiction of the two administrations, the North and the South; The Good Friday Agreement (GFA) or the Belfast Agreement (irish: Comhaonté Aoine an Chéasta or Comhaonté Bhéal Feirste; Ulster-Scots: Guid Friday Greeance or Bilfawst Greeance) is a couple of agreements signed on 10 April 1998 that put an end to most of the violence of the Troubles, a political conflict in Northern Ireland that had erupted since the late 1960s. This was an important development in the Northern Ireland peace process in the 1990s. Northern Ireland`s current system of de-decentralized government is based on the agreement. The agreement also created a number of institutions between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. As part of the agreement, the British and Irish governments committed to holding referendums in Northern Ireland and the Republic on 22 May 1998. The referendum on Northern Ireland is expected to approve the deal reached at the multi-party talks. The Republic of Ireland`s referendum should approve the Anglo-Irish agreement and facilitate the modification of the Irish constitution in accordance with the agreement. In addition to the number of signatories[note 1], Stefan Wolff identifies the following similarities and differences between the issues dealt with in the two agreements: 8. During the transition period between the northern Ireland Assembly elections and the transfer of power to them, representatives of the Transitional Administration of Northern Ireland and the Irish Government, acting in the North-South Council of Ministers, will implement, in consultation with the British Government, a work programme with at least 12 themes , in order to identify and identify, by 31 October 1998, the areas in which cooperation and implementation will be mutually beneficial. These areas can be added to the points in the schedule list. In 2004, negotiations were held between the two governments, the DUP, and Sinn Féin, for an agreement to restore the institutions. The talks failed, but a document published by governments detailing the changes to the Belfast agreement was known as the “comprehensive agreement.” However, on 26 September 2005, it was announced that the Provisional Republican Army of Ireland had completely closed its arsenal of weapons and had “taken it out of service”. Nevertheless, many trade unionists, especially the DUP, remained skeptical.
Among the loyalist paramilitaries, only the Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF) had decommissioned all weapons.  Further negotiations took place in October 2006 and resulted in the St Andrews Agreement. (ii) recognize that it is up to the inhabitants of the island of Ireland alone to exercise, by mutual agreement between the two parties and without external hindrance, their right to self-determination on the basis of free and concomitant consent, north and south, if it is their wish to accept that this right must be obtained and exercised with the agreement and approval of a majority of the people of Northern Ireland; These institutional provisions, established in these three areas of action, are defined in the agreement as “interdependent and interdependent”.
