Hon. Barbara McDougall (Secretary of State for External Affairs):
First of all, Madam Speaker, there is no difference between what was said by the Minister of National Defence, the Prime Minister or myself. We are examining our military and financial resources so that we can make our contribution in Yugoslavia as we have done since the beginning of the war.
Yesterday, the Secretary-General's report was put before the Security Council. I have not yet seen the report, but I will examine it as soon as I get it. Meanwhile we have made a decision concerning the feasibility of sending more soldiers or other Canadian military forces. I talked to my international colleagues last week in Luxembourg and we are still looking at the possibilities.
