§ 21. Ms Oona King
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made with the Lusaka peace process in the Great Lakes region. 
§ Mr. Bradshaw
A key element of the peace process, the Inter Congolese Dialogue, is due to start in South Africa at the end of this month. Foreign troops are being withdrawn and there has been some progress in the disarmament and demobilisation of rebels operating in the DRC. We hope that the Foreign Secretary's visit to the region with his French counterpart later this month will help push forward the process still further.
