The Chairman of Chad’s Transitional Military Council, Mahamat Déby, proposed the creation of a joint force on the Libyan border to avoid events similar to those that led to the assassination of Chad’s former President Idriss Déby Itno in April and to prevent the attack of rebel groups.
Mahamat Déby also stated that, as Chad, they are determined to help the Libyan people, and that mercenaries and militia groups in Libya can harm neighboring countries. Recalling the security and cooperation agreement signed by Libya, Sudan, Niger, and Chad in 2018 to combat terrorism and human smuggling, Déby emphasized that this agreement was not very effective in the past but could be implemented once again.
In addition to this, during the week, Musa Al-Koni, one of the three members of the Libyan Presidential Council, and Déby have conducted a meeting in N’Djamena, the capital of Chad. The two said they agreed that the aforementioned subjects in Libya pose a threat to Chad. Al-Koni expressed that they will start initiatives to reconsider and activate the quadruple agreement signed in 2018. The two sides stated that they are also negotiating agreements to be made in fields outside of security and cooperation.
