Minister Gilmore said that the deal has successfully delivered savings in the public sector and that the Government honours its agreements.
Earlier, the Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said the Government has to look ahead to a successor to the deal.
Speaking in Dublin this morning, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said there is one Croke Park Agreement and the Government is committed to it.
"There is one agreement, and we're going to honour that agreement," he said.
"The agreement is in writing, it's on paper, it has 18 months to run or thereabouts and we're going to honour that agreement.
"It has delivered and when Government makes an agreement, it keeps it."
