HC Deb 02 July 1996 vol 280 c423W
Mr. Parry

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what actions Her Majesty's Government have taken in respect of missing(a) Kuwaiti and Iranian prisoners of war in Iraq and (b) Iraqi prisoners of war in Iran; and if he will make a statement. [34030]

Mr. Hanley

We urge Iraq and Iran to fulfil their obligations under the relevant UN resolutions covering prisoners of war and support the work of the International Committee of the Red Cross. At meetings of the ICRC's tripartite commission and its technical sub-committee, we have repeatedly pressed the Iraqis about their failure to account for the Kuwaiti and other nationals detained in Iraq after the Gulf war and still unaccounted for.
