In a press release AU sent to ENA on Tuesday, the ministerial meeting will bring together the Defense Ministers of member countries of the Initiative, namely, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and South Sudan.

The meeting is expected to review and approve the mission documents of the ICR-LRA.

According to ENA, the proposed ministerial meeting is a follow up to the meeting of experts and Chiefs of Defense Staff held in Bangui on 20 December 2012.

The forthcoming adoption by the Defense Ministers of the mission documents of the Initiative will make it possible to enhance the effectiveness of the military operations undertaken under the command of the Regional Task Force Headquarters based in Yambio, South Sudan.
