HL Deb 23 May 1996 vol 572 cc105-6WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their response to the resolution of the European Parliament calling for a negotiated settlement to the armed conflict in the traditional Kurdish regions of Turkey.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

We condemn terrorism wherever it occurs and support the Turkish Government in its refusal to negotiate with terrorists. But we fully support the need for a multifaceted approach to the Kurdish question in the south east which does not rely purely on military means.
