HC Deb 08 January 2002 vol 377 c578W
20. Mr. Joyce

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the role of Russia in the campaign against terrorism. [23014]

Mr. Bradshaw

Russia is an important partner in the international coalition against terrorism, as was demonstrated by the announcement of the UK/Russian Joint Working Group on International Terrorism on 21 December during President Putin's visit. This underlined our shared commitment to fighting terrorism by diplomatic, military and economic means.
