Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned about ongoing conflict, humanitarian crises and human rights challenges in Sudan and South Sudan; notes the UK's important contribution to the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended one of Africa's longest running civil wars and led to the secession of South Sudan; is gravely concerned that conflict now rages in both Sudan and South Sudan whilst issues between the two countries remain unresolved; is alarmed that in both countries, millions are displaced and humanitarian conditions are some of the worst in the world, despite substantial support from the UK; takes a long-term view of the wider challenges facing the two countries, including the outstanding issues between Sudan and South Sudan; and calls on the UK to continue and expand its humanitarian and diplomatic efforts to support the people of Sudan and South Sudan in their search for peace, reconciliation and justice.
