HL Deb 24 March 1983 vol 440 cc1334-5WA
Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will support the offer of the Head of State of Egypt to act as an intermediary to end the conflict between Iran and Iraq.

Lord Belstead

We are ready to support any effort which has a realistic hope of bringing an early and negotiated settlement to this conflict. We have supported attempts by the United Nations Secretary-General and others. We understand that for their part the Iranian Government do not accept President Mubarak's initiative.
