HC Deb 03 March 2000 vol 345 cc440-1W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with the Government of Nigeria concerning the Christian-Muslim conflicts in the north of the country. [112988]

Mr. Hain

I discussed the situation in Northern Nigeria with Nigerian Foreign Minister Lamido on 14 February.

I was deeply concerned by the situation in Kaduna and condemn the recent violence there and elsewhere. I have appealed to all those concerned for calm and for them to settle their differences without recourse to violence.
