— The South African government is sending 400 army troops to the Central African Republic, said President Jacob Zuma Sunday.

The deployment of the soldiers “is part of South Africa’s international obligation” to the Central African Republic, said the statement issued by Zuma’s office.

The South African National Defense Force troops will “assist with capacity building of the CAR Defense Force and will also assist CAR with the planning and implementation of the disarmament, demobilization and re-integration processes” to deal with the country’s rebels, said Zuma’s statement.

Sending soldiers to Central African Republic is part of South Africa’s efforts “to bring about peace and stability in the region,” said the announcement by Zuma’s office.
