HC Deb 14 March 2001 vol 364 cc597-8W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent contact he has had with the Government of Indonesia concerning inter-communal killings. [153539]

Mr. Battle

We are deeply concerned by reports of inter-communal violence in Kalimantan and regret the extensive loss of life resulting from these clashes. We have urged the communities involved to halt the violence. We called on the Indonesian authorities to re-establish law and order, and to assist the communities in finding a peaceful and lasting solution. I issued a statement to this effect on 27 February.
