We work closely with other members of the international community regarding the long-running conflict on Northern Uganda. Our dialogue includes discussion of the recent historic step by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to issue its first arrest warrants for five Lord's Resistance Army commanders. The UK is a strong supporter of the work of the ICC and together with our EU partners, we have called on all those involved to work to facilitate the arrest of the individuals subject to the warrants.
