China: Armed Forces

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence further to the answer of 20 October 2008, Official Report, column 130W, on China: armed forces, whether the interruption of military co-operation with China by EU member states, as agreed in the Madrid Declaration 1989, remains in place. (229958)

As I said in my answer to the hon. Member on 20 October 2008, Official Report, column 130W, most of the measures of the Madrid Declaration of 1989 have long since fallen into disuse. This includes the measure specifying the interruption of military co-operation by member states. The arms embargo, however, remains in place.
