HC Deb 24 November 1987 vol 123 c102W
Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what communication he has had with the Government of the Sudan about civil nuclear materials from European Economic Community countries allegedly illegally sold on the black market in Khartoum.

Mr. Eggar

We have had no direct contact with the Government of Sudan on this matter. However, we understand that there have been contacts between the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Government of Sudan and that the International Atomic Energy Authority has no evidence to confirm the allegation of a black market in weapons grade nuclear material in Khartoum.
