Chad: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what role UK armed forces will play in the EU military mission to Chad. (154222)

Following the agreement of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1778, the EU are discussing a military mission to Chad/Central African Republic. The UK supports the mission as a key means of contributing to regional stability and helping to resolve the Darfur crisis, but we have made it clear that the role of the UK Armed Forces in any mission will be very limited given the extent of our commitments elsewhere.
