President Zuma returned to South Africa on Tuesday night, from the summit which discussed and agreed on various critical security issues affecting particularly the Democratic Republic of Congo and the entire Great Lakes Region.

South Africa, as a signatory to the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the DRC and a member of the Regional Oversight Mechanism, has reiterated its support to the efforts of the ICGLR at seeking a lasting political solution in the Great Lakes Region. This is in line with SA's foreign policy which promotes a peaceful resolution of conflicts and discourages unconstitutional changes of government.

The relations between South Africa and the Republic of Rwanda were also discussed at the summit which was also attended by Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

Diplomatic relations between the two countries are at an all-time low following back-to-back expulsions of diplomats.

During the summit there was an agreement that the two countries must discuss the issue and find a mutually agreeable solution.

President Zuma was accompanied by Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, and Minister of State Security, Siyabonga Cwele.
