In January 2009, the Congolese government announced that the second phase of its demobilisation, disarmament and reintegration (DDR) process would be completed at the end of December 2009. This announcement came with the caveat that, should any combatants still not have been demobilised by that time, their demobilisation would become the responsibility of the United Nations Security and Stabilization Support Strategy (UNSSSS) for the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Congolese Programme de Stabilisation et de Reconstruction des Zones sortant des conflicts Armes (STAREC).
