Cllr John Blair said: “I would urge all sides to accept whatever decision is made by the Parades Commission. As the lawful independent parading regulatory body, their determinations should be abided by.
“I would appeal for calm on all sides. With several nights of violence there is an urgent need to reduce tensions in the area.
“Parading has obviously been a contentious issue in recent years. I hope that the all-party talks to be led by Dr Richard Haass that is looking at flags, parades and the past, can achieve a positive outcome on these issues.”
