To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of the political situation in Chile.
The British Government is concerned at events that have occurred in Chile in recent days. We condemn the violence that has taken place and welcome the efforts of everyone involved in restoring the situation in the country to normality and in reconciling differing views. Our Embassy in Santiago has talked with representatives of the Chilean Government about the protests and has expressed concern about the violence. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
