London, United Kingdom (February 04, 2014): According to information Labour MPs Mike Gapes, Pat McFadden and Chris Williamson during a Parliamentary meeting in the House of Commons on February 04, 2013 suggested that, even if Britain did just offer advice to India regarding armed action against the Sikhs back in 1984, an apology was still merited.

But Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs William Hague rejected these suggestions.

He said that Britain should only apologise for what it was responsible for, he argued.

It was not responsible for the way the attack on the Golden Temple was carried out.

He also rejected calls for a further inquiry.

It may be recalled that UK cabinet secretary’s report about British links with June 1984 attack on Darbar Sahib was released today. To read this report, click here.
