§ Mr. Iain Mills
asked the Lord Privy Seal why Her Majesty's Government endorsed the recent statement by the European Economic Community countries criticising South African action against terrorism.
§ Mr. Luce
The statement reflected the Government's concern, and that of the other Governments of the Ten, that the violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states bordering South Africa would exacerbate tensions and run counter to the search for peaceful solutions to the problems of the region. The statement made clear that the Ten are opposed to violence, no matter where or by whom. as a means of resolving political problems.
