Baroness Kinnock is on a three day visit to Sudan. During her trip, the Baroness has urged for more international engagement and greater interest from the international community to ensure that violence will not derail the presently "fragile" Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed five years ago.
Escalating violence in southern Sudan has prompted fears of insecurity, particularly with April's elections closing in.
The British minister emphasized the need to promote peace through dialogue and during her trip in Sudan expressed confidence in a 'peaceful general elections'. She emphasized a peaceful electoral process can be fostered through dialogue and not violence.
