US assures Uganda of cooperation against rebels

    KAMPALA, Sept. 21 (Xinhuanet) -- US National Security Advisor Steve Hadley has assured Uganda of his country's cooperation in the planned joint operation between Uganda, Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) against remnants of rebel LRA.

    According to a press release issued from the Uganda State House on Wednesday, the US official made the remarks in Washington D.C. on Tuesday when holding talks with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni who is currently visiting US.

    On a group of Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels entering the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) through southern Sudan, Hadley said US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton will take up the matter of UN Observer Mission in Congo to improve UN presence and performance in the DRC.

    Hadley told Museveni that Uganda is a very high priority area for the American government and the US will continue to assist Uganda to sustain her successes in economic and social reforms as well as benefiting from the US Millennium Account.

    On peace in southern Sudan, the national security advisor said the US expects the Sudanese government to implement the comprehensive peace agreement it signed with SPLA without any precondition in the wake of the untimely death of General John Garang.

    He also said America will work to ensure that the share accruing from oil revenues for southern Sudan will be guaranteed as stipulated in the comprehensive peace agreement.

    On Monday, Museveni said that his country will demand an immediate extradition of LRA rebel leader Joseph Kony.

    LRA rebels have killed tens of thousands of civilians and displaced over 1.4 million people in their 19-year-old rebellion in northern Uganda.    Enditem
