HC Deb 25 January 1991 vol 184 cc365-6W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has on the military action and threat by the Yugoslav Government against the people and elected authorities of Slovenia and other states within Yugoslavia; what representations he has made to the Yugoslav Government; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

On 25 January I summoned the Yugoslav chargé d'affaires and made it clear to him that we would deplore any use or threat of force against the democratically elected governments of Slovenia and Croatia, and that any disputes should be resolved by peaceful negotiation.
