Recognition Of Croatia

EDM number 138 in 1991-92, proposed by Ieuan Wyn Jones on 12/11/1991.

That this House reaffirms its commitment to the protection of democracy against military aggression and the defence of the right to self determination as enshrined in United Nations resolutions; notes that 94 per cent. of the people of Croatia, after 45 years of Communist rule, voted for independence from the Yugoslav federation and that the Croatian Parliament has enacted legislation to protect the rights of ethnic minorities within the borders of Croatia in accordance with all human rights enshrined in international law; congratulates the Foreign Secretary on his description of the Serbian dominated Federal Army as a 'band of brigands'; condemns the attacks of the Federal Army against Croatia as a brutal manifestation of Communist aggression; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to recognise the state of Croatia with the aim of enabling Croatia to take her case to the United Nations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
