§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have reason to doubt the reports of statements by HRH Prince Sultan Bin Abdullah Aziz, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence and Aviation and Inspector General of Saudi Arabia, that "Neither Kuwait nor any other Gulf Co-operation Council Member State now fears Iraq" and "We do not believe in the toppling of the Iraq regime under any form". [HL1676]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
In the communiqu? which followed its 14–15 March summit, the GCC described Iraq's weapons of mass destruction as a threat to the Iraqi people, its neighbours and regional security and stability. The GCC further condemned the serious direct threats made against the security and sovereignty of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
