South Sudan: Peace Negotiations

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL388, tabled on 19 May 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the progress towards ensuring that all commitments entered into in the peace deal signed in South Sudan in 2018 are fully implemented; and which commitments are still to be put into effect.

Implementation of the 2018 Peace Agreement remains behind schedule, with continued delays to key tasks such as the unification of armed forces and transitional justice. As the country's best chance for achieving sustainable peace, the UK is at the forefront of international efforts to pressure South Sudan's leaders to meet their 2018 commitments in full, including during my last visit in October 2020 and the UK Special Envoy's visit in early May.
