Posted by African Press International on September 23, 2007

Kampala (Uganda) The humanitarian community in Uganda including United Nations agencies has said that the key to securing a peaceful, just and durable future for all Ugandans is the conclusion of a final agreement between the government and the Lords Resistance Army (LRA).

In a statement released to mark the International Day of Peace on Friday, the community said it remained committed to supporting the government and people of Uganda in the implementation of the peace in northern Uganda, the scene of the LRA insurgency.

They called upon the government and the LRA to continue their commitment to the peace process in order to find a lasting negotiated solution to the 20-year-old conflict.

The community applauded the continued engagement and progress that has been made in the peace talks so far.
