A DUP spokesman said,
"The DUP only recently became aware of this meeting and subsequently yesterday several of our representatives spoke to a representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to establish what was being discussed, and who was present.
We were not invited to, nor have we been involved in this, or any of these meetings.
While people are at liberty to talk about legacy, ultimately it will be for the political parties, Her Majesty’s Government and victims to determine how we move forward on legacy.
We have always made clear, and it remains our view that legacy issues can only be dealt with in a victims centred manner.
It is particularly galling to find the Irish Government involved at a time when they have yet to deal with collusion in their own backyard."
