HC Deb 18 June 1980 vol 986 c516W
8. Mr. Renton

asked the Lord Privy Seal what further initiatives he will be discussing with his European Economic Community counterparts in regard to the Russian invasion of Afghanistan.

Mr. Hurd

We continue to seek an arrangement which would allow Afghanistan to return to its traditional position as a neutral and non-aligned State. This initiative receives the full support of the Nine.
