Affirmation, declaration (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

assertion

This clue is a double definition.

'affirmation' is the first definition.
(I know that affirmation can be written as assertion)

'declaration' is the second definition.
(I know that assertion is a type of declaration)

(Other definitions for assertion that I've seen before include "Claim" , "Notarises (anag)" , "Emphatic declaration" , "Confident statement of fact" , "Confident declaration" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
