President Cyril Ramaphosa will be attending an extraordinary SADC summit meeting in Mozambique later this week to discuss the crisis in that country.
Heads of state will meet to plan the way forward after insurgents attacked Cabo Delgado again last month. Several people were killed, including a South African man.
The SADC says it is deeply concerned about the continued terrorist attacks in the region, even after the military claimed that it had regained control of the coastal town of Palma.
Ramaphosa will be accompanied by Minister of International Relations Naledi Pandor, Minister of Defence Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and Minister of State Security Ayanda Dlodlo.
