I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 30 November 2009, Hansard, 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.
