South Africa, Angola and the DRC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing the Tripartite Mechanism on Dialogue and Cooperation in Luanda, Angola, in August 2013.

The objective of the Mechanism is to support the consolidation of peace and stability in the DRC. The three countries have agreed to establish the Permanent Secretariat Offices of the Mechanism, to be hosted in Luanda, Angola, in order to drive this strategic cooperation.

Amongst other things, it is expected that the Ministerial Meeting will review progress in the implementation of the MoU.
