HC Deb 01 November 1996 vol 284 cc307-8W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the treaty on understanding, co-operation and good neighbourhood signed on 16 September by Hungary and Romania, with particular reference to the implications for other European states of(a) the mutual recognition of territorial integrity and (b) the prohibition on territorial claims contained in article 4 of that treaty. [1162]

Dr. Liam Fox

We welcome the treaty of Understanding, co-operation and good neighbourliness between Hungary and Romania as a notable achievement which will contribute to good relations between the two countries. The treaty does not create rights of duties for other European states and is a matter for the two contracting parties alone.
