Mrs. Spelman

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development when she last discussed political security in the Great Lakes region of Africa with the UN. [54257]

Clare Short

I am in frequent contact with the UN about the security problems of the Great Lakes region and the means of ending the conflict there. I spoke to the Secretary General again this last weekend when we usefully were able to talk through a broad range of current issues on the Great Lakes.
