HC Deb 07 December 1994 vol 251 c268W
Mr. Patrick Thompson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the Government's policy with regard to arms sales to Syria.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The EU arms embargo on Syria was lifted on 28 November. All applications for the sale of arms will be considered on a case by case basis in the light of the international guidelines to which we are committed. These include whether a proposed transfer would be likely to increase tension in the region or contribute to regional instability.
