Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma arrived in N'Djamena, Chad, for a working visit on Wednesday, the presidency said.

Zuma was invited to the Economic Community of Central African States (Eccas) summit by Chad's president Idriss Dby Itno, said presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj.

"It is expected that the Eccas Extraordinary Summit will consider ways of restoring constitutional order in the Central African Republic," he said.

Zuma was accompanied by International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele.

Thirteen South African soldiers were killed in a clash with rebels in the CAR last week.

"South Africa calls on the international community to remain actively engaged in the promotion of peace, security, democracy and good governance in the CAR and the region," said Maharaj.
