To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what recent discussions he has had with his French counterpart on (a) European Security and Defence Policy, (b) NATO and (c) France's EU presidency between July and December 2008; and if he will make a statement. (200955)

I met the French Defence Minister for bilateral discussions during the UK-France summit held in London on 27 March. I also had the opportunity to meet him at the NATO summit held in Bucharest on 2-4 April.

In the course of these meetings we discussed a range of issues, including European Security and Defence Policy, NATO, and France's EU presidency between July and December 2008.
