§ 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.
