“It’s our duty to work together as we have always done in the past to find lasting solutions to these areas of instability,” he urged.

Hakainde further said SADC was committed to ensure that peace prevailed in the two regions.

“We, as SADC envision a region that will provide that environment peace, security, stability,” he added.

The Head of State said peace, security and stability were important for the region to achieve all its economic and social goals.
