The Government of Chad, represented by Mahamat Idriss Déby, current President of the Transitional Military Council, and Al-Burhan, President of the Sudan Sovereignty Council, met on Monday, 30 August 2021 in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital. We talked about securing economic cooperation, but above all a security and military alliance between the two countries.
Chad and Sudan decided on Monday, 30 August, to strengthen their security cooperation. Mahamat Idriss Déby (Chad) and Al-Burhan (Sudan) met in the capital of Sudan to decide on future relations between the two nations. Chad relies heavily on Sudan’s support to help it complete its transition period. “We have both the capacity and the political will to face the challenges and problems facing our two countries,” said Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno. “Our country is in a period of transition, and we expect Sudan to support us as a neighbour and friend,” he added.
These two countries have points in common, especially in the fight against terrorism, hence the importance of solid collaboration to deal with potential threats. Thus, the current strong man of Chad, Mahamat Idris Deby, came back during the meeting on the need to implement cooperation with Sudan but also with the African Union in the fight against terrorism and the securing of borders. Sudan, for its part, did not fail to emphasize the very important role of the former Chadian President, Idriss Déby Itno, in consolidating relations between the two countries.
Moreover, N’djamena and Khartoum announced that there will be further agreements between the two nations in the coming days. The objective is to fight together for the defence of the integrity of the territory and the security of populations.
