Afghanistan: NATO

Volume 688: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there is any procedure whereby NATO members can be expelled or suspended from the organisation in light of their inability or unwillingness to provide troops to take part in the organisation's operation in Afghanistan. [HL881]

There is no mechanism for expelling or suspending a NATO member. All allies contribute troops to the NATO operation in Afghanistan and at the recent Riga summit reaffirmed their commitment to the operation's success.
