HL Deb 02 November 1998 vol 594 c14WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will detail the provisions in the Charter of the United Nations, or elsewhere in international law, under which an attack by Turkey (a member of NATO) on Syria would be lawful, as recently claimed by the Prime Minister of Turkey. [HL3449]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

It is for the Government of Turkey to justify any military action that they might take.
