The widow of Constable Stephen Carroll said that she is prepared to meet the parents of one of her husband's killers to help the North move forward.
Kate Carroll said that the decision to talk to Brendan McConville's mother and father was not a difficult one.
McConville and 21-year-old John Paul Wooton are serving 25 and 14-year sentences respectively for killing Constable Carroll in 2009.
Mrs Carroll said that actions speak louder than words.
"If you say you're going to move forward then try and do it," she said.
"I have no contentions with anybody. As I said one time, I'm a nobody who loves everybody, and if I can make things better for people in this life then why not?
"You're just here once."
