Below is the text of Mr Major’s comments on military action in Yugoslavia, made in Budapest, Hungary, on 28th May 1992.

I’m not going to speculate on what might happen beyond that, I think this is a matter where we must take it one step at a time and use the opportunities that are immediately in front of us.
