§ Lord Avebury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will ask the OSCE High Commissioner for National Minorities to report on the situation of the Meskhetian Muslims who were deported from Georgia by Stalin in 1944. [HL332]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
The OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities, Mr. van der Stoel, plans to visit Georgia later this year, although a date has not yet been confirmed. I understand that the subject of the Meskhetian Muslims will be on his agenda.
