§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether it is NATO's agreed position that the Turkish invasion of Iraq should be "neither condoned nor condemned", as suggested by the United States Vice-President Gore.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
NATO has taken no formal position on the Turkish invasion of northern Iraq. We are watching the situation in the region with concern. We and our EU partners continue to press at the highest level for the Turks to withdraw their troops at the earliest opportunity.
