HC Deb 20 December 1983 vol 51 c156W
Q17. Mr. Latham

asked the Prime Minister what diplomatic objectives she hopes to pursue in her forthcoming visit to Hungary.

The Prime Minister

My hon. Friend will recall. that I said in my speech at the Guildhall on 14 November that I sought a better relationship between East and West: Britain was ready to pursue, in the right circumstances, a sensible dialogue with the Soviet Union and the countries of Eastern Europe, and it was in that spirit that I had accepted an invitation to visit Hungary early next year.

I hope to have an exchange of views on all major aspects of concern in the field of East-West relations generally and, at a bilateral level, to explore ways in which it may be possible to expand still further our commercial, economic and cultural relations to our mutual benefit.
