Uganda: Peace Process

Volume 702: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their assessment of the sustainability of the peace process in northern Uganda following the recent talks in Juba. [HL4009]

The Government and other international partners consider that the Juba peace process was a success, resulting in agreement between the Lord's Resistance Army and Ugandan Government delegations on a number of important issues. Despite the failure of the two sides to sign a final peace agreement, it is important that the gains made by the Juba process are not lost. The UK and its partners in the international community are committed to improving the situation in the north through continued financial assistance and support to the Ugandan Government's Peace, Recovery and Development Plan.
