The Good Friday Agreement is signed. Also known as the Belfast Agreement, it stipulates that Northern Ireland will continue as part of the United Kingdom for as long as the majority of the people in the six counties want it and that Ireland will be reunited if and when a majority of the citizens of the six counties vote for a reunification.

This agreement is signed by most political parties in Northern Ireland as well as the British and Irish governments. It will be approved by Northern Ireland voters in a referendum in May. It is perhaps the single most important document in the entire Northern Ireland peace process.
