Reply by the WEU Council to Assembly Recommendation 348 (London, 21 October 1980)

On 21 October 1980, the Secretary-General of Western European Union (WEU) sends the Member States the Council’s reply to Assembly Recommendation 348 on the application of the Brussels Treaty following the invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union. The text underlines that the Member States have discharged themselves of the full range of their responsibilities both as member States of the Western European Union and as partner within the Atlantic Alliance. Measures have been taken to strenghten the Alliance's defence capability in Europe. The text also incorporates point 6 of the British draft (WPM(80)22/1), in which the United Kingdom undertakes to provide an annual statement of the strength of its Second Tactical Air Force.
