Sudan: Politics and Government

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 6 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment has been made of the security situation in south Sudan following violent incidents in December 2009; and if he will make a statement. (308001)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 30 November 2009, Official Report, column 431W.

We are very concerned by the continuing insecurity in south Sudan as a result of tribal violence and activity by the Lord’s Resistance Army. This has serious implications for stability in the region and for the safety of the people of south Sudan. It also undermines implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in Sudan.
