Former prime minister Tony Blair, who along with Irish premier Bertie Ahern led the peace talks in Northern Ireland, said the Good Friday Agreement gave hope to conflicts across the world.
The Prime Minister has led tributes to the "remarkable political courage" of the architects of the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland, fifteen years after it was signed.
"It represented a massive step forward from what has gone before, a clear manifestation that politics and democracy would triumph over violence," he said.
"I have no doubt that the Agreement was a truly momentous event in the history of Northern Ireland.
"The Belfast Agreement was the platform to build a new, confident, inclusive and modern Northern Ireland, whose best days lie ahead. While we have come a long way, much remains to be done."
Tributes to the architects of the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland have been led by David Cameron to mark its 15th anniversary today.
The Prime Minister said the 1998 political accord, which brought about devolved governance from Stormont, heralded a new beginning after decades of division and terrorism.
But he warned that more work is needed to build a new Northern Ireland.
The good Friday agreement was reached after nearly two years of talks and 30 years of conflict.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Republic of Ireland's leader Bertie Ahern brokered the deal, following a talks process chaired by former US Senator George Mitchell.
