HC Deb 07 May 1999 vol 330 c474W
Mr. Wareing

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what role is being played by Turkey in NATO's operations in Yugoslavia. [83489]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

NATO operates by consensus. Like all Allies, Turkey takes part fully in the Alliance decision-making process.

Turkey's military contribution to NATO operations in the FRY currently comprises 11 F-16 fighter aircraft in addition to transport aircraft and a frigate. It also has forces stationed in Albania with NATO's humanitarian support operations.
