§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the Foreign Secretary has been rightly quoted as saying that "all members of the international community will need to show wisdom and restraint in ensuring that the pursuit of markets for weaponry does not undermine the arms control process and fuel a regional arms race", and if so what steps Her Majesty's Government are taking to ensure that the US and Turkey do "not undermine the arms control process and fuel a regional arms race" in ex-Yugoslavia.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
Her Majesty's Government have repeatedly made clear that agreement on an effective arms control regime in the former Yugoslavia, as provided in Article IV of the Dayton Agreement, must be a first priority; and that any military support to the Parties must be consistent with that objective.
