HC Deb 04 May 1982 vol 23 c20W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Prime Minister whether she will make a statement on reports of co-operation between the Federal Republic of Germany and Argentina on nuclear weapons.

The Prime Minister

The Government of the Federal Republic made a statement on these matters on 19 April. We are entirely satisfied both that there is no truth in suggestions of support from the Federal Republic of Germany for Argentina in the acquisition of an atomic bomb, and that co-operation in the nuclear field between the two countries is firmly tied to an effective non-proliferation policy. All the relevant agreements on co-operation for peaceful purposes have been approved by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
