Al Sarraj Makes Brief Visit To Chad.

Ndjamena, President of Presidency Council, Fayez Al Sarraj made Wednesday a brief visit to Chad during which he conducted talks with the Chadian President, Idriss Deby covering bilateral relations in various fields. President Deby renewed Chad's support to the Presidency Council and GNA, praising the efforts of Al Sarrj to restore stability in Libya. He said the Libyan role was fundamental and effective in establishing the AU and what is happening in Libya is impacting across the country. Deby said Chad has no special agenda in Libya, only a desire to achieve security, stability and peace in the neighbouring country. He said the Chadians know what wars mean and they do not want the repetition of such a thing in a brotherly country. Al Sarrj for his part stressed the depth of Libyan -Chadian relations. He said although his visit to Chad is late but he met with President Deby in many international fora, stressing the importance of the role of Chad in supporting stability in Libya looking forward to develop Libyan-Chad relations conducive to the interests of the two peoples. Al-Sarrj outlined the developments in Libya since the signing of the political accord and efforts made for reconciliation among political parties. The two sides agreed on coordination between the relevant agencies in the two countries through the common borders to fight terrorism, and human smugglers and traffickers. The two parties also agreed to implement the security protocol signed last April in Niamey by Libya, Chad, Niger and Sudan which was considered a cooperation framework in the face of security threats at the borders. The two sides agreed to hold a similar meeting next August in Khartoum to discuss developments and ways to secure common borders and stop infiltrations. A joint statement was issued at the end of the visit covering the points agreed at the meeting, and an invitation was extended to President of Chad to visit Libya which was accepted and its date to be fixed through diplomatic channels.
