In a virtual format, the extraordinary meeting was convened by the Ministerial Committee of the Cooperation Body in the Areas of Politics, Defense and Security of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The debates, conducted in Pretoria, are aimed at reviewing the SADC mission’s term of office in Mozambique, in order to strengthen regional cooperation against terrorism, which particularly plagues the province of Cabo Delgado, in the north of that African country.

The Angolan Foreign Ministry explained that the meeting analyzed the budgetary implications inherent to the extension of this support mission, ordered last year.

The Angolan delegation established the online contact from the Foreign Ministry headquarters in Luanda, with the participation of the main heads of the agencies linked to defense and security matters, a press release from the Ministry confirmed.

Terrorist actions in northern Mozambique keep neighboring countries in suspense, aware that the phenomenon goes beyond the particular situation in Cabo Delgado, subject to increasing attacks since 2017.

In 2021, an assessment by the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region and the Economic Community of Central African States warned that this international scourge shifted its epicenter from the Middle East to Africa, with consequences in the southern and central Sahel regions.
