The UK has played a leading role in supporting the African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS). We have committed £20 million for this financial year, bringing our total contribution to AMIS since its inception to £52 million. The money has provided vehicles, logistical support and other practical assistance.
We are also playing a leading role in efforts to secure further support for AMIS. We regularly lobby our EU and other international partners to provide additional assistance. The US, the EU and certain other donors have already made substantial contributions. We expect further pledges to be made at the forthcoming AMIS Donors Conference in Brussels on 18 July.
