HC Deb 08 January 2002 vol 377 c582W
37. Vernon Coaker

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment he has made of the situation in Angola. [23032]

Mr. Bradshaw

We continue to be concerned by the human consequences of the civil war in Angola, which include widespread suffering, internal displacement and the violation of human rights.

We urge dialogue, involving all parties to the conflict, as an essential first step towards addressing these problems. We welcome the growing contribution of the churches and civil society to finding a sustainable solution.
