Northern Uganda Peace Talks in Juba, Sudan

The United States appreciates the Government of South Sudan's (GOSS) efforts to mediate a peaceful resolution to the 20-year old conflict with the Lord's Resistance Army. We have followed closely the many rounds of the GOSS-mediated talks to date in Juba. We are concerned that demands to change the mediator and venue of the talks will only delay peace in the region and further the suffering of displaced northern Ugandans. Our priority remains peace in northern Uganda. We continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the displaced persons living in LRA-affected areas, promote reconciliation, and support the reintegration of former abductees and ex-combatants into their communities.
