South Africa is considering providing humanitarian assistance to Mozambique’s conflict-ridden north, despite its own "inadequate resources", International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor has said.

Pandor told a Chatham House briefing on Wednesday that South Africa and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) have been unable to agree with the Mozambican government as to "what form of support we might provide" and this "remains a very worrying puzzle to us as the South African government", she said.

Pandor added that "every effort" was being made to "reach out to the government of Mozambique and to sit with them to define a support agenda".
