'That this house applauds the Foreign Secretary's statement on ethical values as the foundation for Britain's foreign policy; regrets the lack of progress made so far by the international community in achieving the civil agenda of the Dayton Agreement, notably the establishment of national institutions, freedom of movement, media freedom and return of refugees; calls upon the British Government, therefore, to use its international influence to secure a long-term commitment for the maintenance of a large and powerful military force beyond the date set for the withdrawal of US combat troops in July 1998; and urges the constructive use of that military force to ensure stronger support for the Hague Tribunal, especially as regards the arrest of indicted war criminals such as Karadzic and Mladic, and also the use of the international force to oppose human-rights violations, to enforce the right of return of all refugees and displaced persons to their original homes in security and safety, and to ensure that the OSCE conducts the municipal elections in September 1997 in accordance with acceptable international standards.'
