Johannesburg - South Africa would actively participate in peace missions and not war if it was under the rule of the Congress of the People, its leader Mosioua Lekota said on Saturday.


"Under Cope, political leaders and military commanders of SA National Defence Force would be trained to know that they may only go out of South Africa equipped to contribute to peace but not armed to take lives of others," he said at a Freedom Day event in Sedibeng on Saturday.


"Under the administration of Cope, no young South Africans will be deployed outside South Africa in missions where they may engage in activities of war, where they may have to kill or be killed."


He was referring to the incident where 13 South African soldiers were killed on March 23 when they were attacked by rebel fighters in the Central African Republic. Another 27 were wounded.
