Zimbabwe has committed to working with other African states in the provision of peacekeeping for regional stability and integrity.

Under the African Union vision for the continent, the sustenance of peace forms the main agenda to guarantee development and end poverty.

Working with other SADC regional countries including Botswana and South Africa, Zimbabwe has made a commitment to continue supporting this agenda through participating in peacekeeping missions in warring zones as alluded by Zimbabwe Commander Defence Forces, General Phillip Valerio Sibanda during a meeting for the Combined Joint African Exercise CJAX at the Staff College.

The mission team which was appraising on the latest developments pursuant to the implementation of a ceasefire protocol signed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in June this year is confident that through these combined efforts strides achieved to date in maintaining regional peace will be sustained.

The CJAX meeting was attended by high ranking officials drawn from the defence and law enforcing arms both local and regional.
