Northern Ireland's political leaders have pledged to tackle tensions over controversial parades that sparked rioting for the last three nights in Belfast.
This comes after unionists were criticised for calling for the scrapping of the commission that rules on contentious marches after it placed restrictions on a loyalist band that played provocative music outside a Catholic church.
Loyalist paramilitaries were then blamed for orchestrating riots near the same area following a republican parade this week, with more than 60 police officers injured in the disturbances.
First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness met representatives from the north Belfast area where the riots took place.
The two unionist and republican leaders then held separate press conferences condemning the violence that saw police caught between rival sectarian gangs.
But Mr McGuinness warned that all sides had to respect the rulings of the Parades Commission or risk renewed violence.
"Our position in Sinn Fein is very clear, people need to abide by the rule of law," he said.
Mr McGuinness said the recent marching dispute had seen "terrible displays of bigotry and sectarianism" and he called for mutual respect.
"If people are not prepared to abide by these determinations then what they are effectively doing is sowing the seeds for further conflict within our society.
"And I think they are making a big mistake. And they need to reflect that if we are in a position of political leadership, you actually have to lead."
