Letter to HE Sir Peter Ricketts KCMG,
UK Permanent Representative to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation
(NATO), from the Chairman of the Committee, 7 September 2004
I write to inform you that the Foreign Affairs
Committee has launched an inquiry into the situation in the Balkans.
The inquiry will examine aspects of recent economic and political
development in the Balkans and the current threats to the region's
stability. The inquiry will look in particular at the current
situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro,
and the autonomous region of Kosovo. As a contribution to their
inquiry, the Committee would greatly appreciate a short submission
to the inquiry, outlining your analysis of NATO policy and its
implementation in the Balkans.
The Committee would be greatly assisted if we
were to receive any such memorandum by 11 October 2004. If you
have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Committee
Secretariat on 0207 219 4082.
Rt Hon Donald Anderson MP
Chairman of the Committee
7 September 2004
