HC Deb 03 March 1982 vol 19 cc185-6W
Mr. Ernie Roberts

asked the Lord Privy Seal if, in view of the fact that the Uruguayan Army is being used to repress the people of Uruguay and has been involved in the torture of Uruguayan citizens, he will seek at the United Nations to obtain the withdrawal of this army from the peacekeeping forces in Sinai.

Mr. Hurd

The Sinai multinational force and observers was established, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Egypt/Israel peace treaty, by the Governments of the United States of America, Egypt and Israel. The force is controlled by its own directorate and is not connected with the United Nations. We have no plans to ask for the withdrawal of the forces of any participating nation.
