§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the situation in South-East Asia as far as British interests are concerned.414W
Mr. James Callaghan:
The situation in Vietnam and Cambodia and particularly the human suffering there are of deep concern to me. Our interests, as those of common humanity, require a just and lasting peace in the area. I appeal to all concerned to seek urgently a political rather than a military solution and so to allow the peoples in the area to live in peace without outside interference.
