Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete (L), Mozambique President Armando Guebuza (C) and Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila (R) walk to an extraordinary Southern African Development Community (SADC) summit in Mozambique on February 8, 2013 to discuss the deployment of peacekeepers to the Democratic Republic of Congo. The group was said to be at an advanced stage of military planning, but there was still disagreement about whether to send a stand-alone SADC force or join the United Nations mission.
