§ Mr. Marlow
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps are being taken to secure the removal of Israeli forces from southern Lebanon.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
We believe that the full implementation of the 1989 Taif accord is the best means to achieve Lebanon's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. We reiterated our support for the accord in the unanimous vote to renew the UNIFIL masdate on 30 January and in the EC declaration on the Gulf of 19 February.
