As part of the agreement with May, the DUP agreed to «fully» respect its commitments in the Good Friday Agreement, but the agreement does not contain benchmarks for assistance. In the deal with May, the DUP pledged to support May`s positions on important policy decisions. In return, May`s party renewed its commitment to keeping the Union between Northern Ireland and Britain and provided more than $1 billion in funding. As a result, people and goods are currently crossing the border without stopping. On 15 August 1998, 29 people were killed when dissident republicans detonated a car bomb in Omagh. It is the largest loss of life in an incident in Northern Ireland since the riots began. While the bombing of Omagh was carried out by republicans opposed to the agreement, they highlighted the issue of the dismantling of paramilitary weapons, which was to take place within two years of the Good Friday agreement. Unionists` anger at the IRA`s refusal to give up its weapons has been linked to frustration over Sinn Féin`s refusal to accept the Reformed Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI). On Friday, April 10, 1998, at 5:30 p.m., an American politician named George Mitchell, who led the talks, said: «I am pleased to announce that the two governments and political parties in Northern Ireland have reached an agreement.» The agreement sets out a framework for the creation and number of institutions in three «parts.» The agreement included a complex set of provisions in a number of areas, including: the participants in the agreement were composed of two sovereign states (the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland), with armed forces and police forces involved in the riots. Two political parties, Sinn Féin and the Progressive Unionist Party (PUP), were linked to paramilitary organisations: the IRA (Commissional Irish Republican Army) and the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). The Ulster Democratic Party (UDP), associated with the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), had withdrawn from the talks three months earlier. The Belfast Agreement is also known as the Good Friday Agreement, as it was concluded on Good Friday on 10 April 1998. It was an agreement between the British and Irish governments and most of northern Ireland`s political parties on how to govern Northern Ireland.
