Extract from speech by Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton 29 September 2009

"The heroism of our fighting men and women is unsurpassed and we owe them a debt we can never fully repay.

"The British armed forces truly are the finest in the world. All British forces will always have all the equipment they need and the best support we can give.


"Britain will work with President Obama and 40 other countries for peace and stability for the people of Afghanistan, and to make sure terrorism doesn't come to the streets of Britain.

"We will work for peace and stability for the peoples of Israel and Palestine.

"We will work to end nuclear proliferation  (and) as partners to end the world's nuclear arms race.

"To Iran : join the international community now or face isolation."
