Volume 689: debated on Thursday 1 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have been consulted by the United States authorities in Baghdad on what response should be given by the allied coalition to the offer of negotiations by militant resistance groups leading to peace talks and the end of fighting. [HL2118]

We are working in close consultation with the Iraqi and US Governments and with coalition military authorities in planning how best to encourage national reconciliation and the demobilisation of militant forces.
