SADC Extraordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government convened in Lilongwe to review the progress of the SADC Standby Mission to Mozambique (SAMIM).
The participants of the 40 years now, SADC member states stood in solidarity on all matters that threatened peace and security in the region. As such, the untiring efforts in seeking lasting peace for Mozambique cements the fact that the spirit of unity still prevails among SADC member states.
It is a consensus amongst all member states that they continue supporting Mozambique in combating terrorism, strengthening and maintaining peace and security through restoration of law and order.
It is encouraging to learn that SAMIM has made remarkable progress in addressing the problem at hand since it was deployed in July 2021.
SADC will continue sharing a common desire to promote peace and security in the region and continue fighting for successful sustenance of regional integration and socio-economic development.
