Sudan: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 482: debated on Wednesday 5 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the Government supports the proposal to widen the mandate of the UN mission in Sudan to include demarcation of the border between North and South Sudan; and if he will make a statement. (212287)

The UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), under its mandate to support implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), is empowered to support the North and the South on border demarcation. UNMIS provides technical and logistical support to the Technical AD Hoc Border Committee, as requested by the UN Security Council in Resolution 1812 (30 April 2008).

The UK fully supports UNMIS in its efforts to ensure complete implementation of the CPA.
