WHY AN AFRICAN STANDBY FORCE?
  • Africa is to be seen to take responsibility for itself
  • It will enhance the obtaining of AU/UN mandates and subsequent donors and funding
  • It will allow for future quick reaction to prevent genocide/killing
  • Transparency/sharing of information and trai-ning – can lead to defusing of potential explosive situations within the region and on the continent

general principles
GENERAL PRINCIPLES
  • The ASF contribution is not an over and above one for the SANDF/DOD!
  • The ASF does not imply that we divorce ourselves from UN.
  • Standby force should deploy in own region, but can deploy outside it.
