US calls on IRA to now discontinue contact with foreign terrorists

From the BBC:

'The IRA pledge was welcomed by the United States administration as "an important and potentially historic statement".

'"They will want to be certain that this terrorism and criminality are indeed things of the past," the statement said.

'The statement added that it understood from the IRA communiqué that "the IRA and its members will no longer have any contact with any foreign paramilitary and terrorist organisations". '

Well, cutting off contact with the British government would create some difficulties, surely?
