HL Deb 25 June 1997 vol 580 c163WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the United States has been keeping its NATO allies, the OSCE, and the United Nations, fully informed of the progress of its policy to arm and train the Bosnian-Croat element of Bosnia, and what is the present situation.

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

The United States Government, in conjunction with Military Professional Resources Incorporated (MPRI), which runs and administers the Train and Equip programme, provides regular updates on progress. Current indications are that MPRI will continue to train the Federation Army at least until mid-1998.
