Her Majesty's Government have conveyed their views on the possible deployment of a National Missile Defence system to the US Administration in numerous recent bilateral and multilateral discussions, as have other NATO allies.

Our views, and those of other allies, are well understood in Washington--as President Clinton made clear in announcing on 1 September his decision to leave a decision on the deployment of any such system to his successor.
