Sudan: Comprehensive Peace Agreement

Volume 698: debated on Monday 28 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they are taking to focus international attention on the comprehensive peace agreement for South Sudan. [HL1351]

We have drawn international attention to the comprehensive peace agreement (CPA) by: raising the issue at multilateral institutions such as the UN and the EU; through resolutions and statements, eg the EU's recent statement on the CPA's third anniversary and the UN's recent statement on the Sudan People's Liberation Movement's resumption of participation in the Government of National Unity; ministerial visits to and calls on key Sudanese leaders, for example, my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for International Development's July 2007 and my September 2007 visit to Sudan; and frequent contact with our closest international partners on matters related to CPA implementation.
