The rebels of south Sudan have made peace with the Sudanese government. This means that the Sudanese army will be able to help shut down LRA camps in southern Sudan. The Sudanese government admitted that it had armed the LRA and left them alone as long as they were hostile to the Sudanese rebels. The Sudanese government didn't care how much mayhem the LRA caused inside Uganda. But the government of Uganda, aided by the UN and other major nations, kept the diplomatic heat on Sudan for years to get the Sudanese to admit their connection with the LRA and stop it.
