§ Mr. Mellor
We shall have four main priorities for our presidency of the WEU. They are:
- — to elaborate the commitments in the WEU platform in order to make practical contributions to the common defence;
- — to use the WEU as a forum for frank discussion of key European security issues;
- — to develop the WEU as a forum for co-ordinating European approaches to out of area issues;
- — to secure a satisfactory outcome to the enlargement negotiations with Spain and Portugal.
