HC Deb 06 March 1996 vol 273 c255W
Mr. Hawkins

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he is taking to assist in preventing the rise of conflict between Greece and Turkey. [17280]

Mr. David Davis

We are encouraging both sides to eschew provocative actions or statements and look for ways of developing constructive dialogue. We have suggested to both that, on the specific question of Imia, the best way forward must be to submit the dispute to arbitration.
