HC Deb 23 June 1966 vol 730 cc130-1W
88. Viscount Lambton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will initiate discussions within the framework of the United Nations with the purpose of achieving a United Nations presence in Aden and the protectorate when independence is declared in 1968.

Mrs. White

A United Nations presence when independence is declared will obviously require the agreement of the government of the independent South Arabia. This is something which might perhaps be discussed at the conference opening in all Ittihad on 1st August to consider ways and means of implementing the United Nations Resolutions on South Arabia, to which the Secretary-General of the United Nations has been invited to send an observer.
