Mr Coleman asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice, on 18 February 1987:

Is he able to say whether on 19 September 1986 the Italian Foreign and Defence Ministries signed an agreement with the US Department of Defense to participate in the Strategic Defense Initiative research program.


Mr Hayden —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The United States and Italy signed a memorandum of understanding concerning Italian participation in SDI research on 19 September 1986. I am not aware of the details of who signed the memorandum on behalf of the two countries.
