United States Supports End Of Conflict With LRA

Press Statement
Office of the Spokesman
Washington, DC
June 17, 2008

U.S. Supports End of Conflict with the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA)

The United States continues to support a peaceful end to the 22-year-old conflict between the Lord's Resistance Army and the Government of Uganda.

We call on LRA leader Joseph Kony to sign and adhere to the Final Peace Agreement (FPA) negotiated in talks that have now concluded in Juba, Sudan.

The United States will support the Government of Uganda in implementing aspects of the FPA that pertain to reconciliation, reintegration, and development in northern Uganda.

The United States condemns the recent LRA attacks on Sudanese Peoples' Liberation Army forces at Nabanga, Sudan, and elsewhere, as well as the LRA's abductions and other abuses of innocent civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, and southern Sudan.

We will continue to support regional initiatives to protect the citizens of these countries.
