HC Deb 04 June 1996 vol 278 c313W
Mr. Winnick

To ask the Prime Minister if he will consult other Heads of Government about extending the implementation force involvement in former Yugoslavia; and if he will make a statement. [31154]

The Prime Minister

Under the terms of the Bosnia peace agreement, and the United Nations Security Council resolution 1031, IFOR's mandate expires in December. We expect implementation force IFOR to have successfully completed its military mission by that time. When IFOR leaves, we expect the leaders elected in the forthcoming Bosnian elections to take on responsibility for Bosnia's future. We remain in constant contact with other Governments on this and other Bosnia-related subjects.
