HC Deb 11 June 1980 vol 986 c214W
Mr. David Watkins

asked the Lord Privy Seal what measures the Government are taking to secure the re-opening of discussions between the European Community and the Arab League.

Mr. Hurd

The Foreign Ministers of the Nine agreed in September and November 1979 that they favoured the resumption of the technical work of the Euro-Arab dialogue. Officials of the Nine are discussing with the Secretary General of the Arab League in Tunis the best means of re-opening the dialogue.
