Libya, Sudan and Niger issued a joint statement on Thursday expressing concern over the ongoing unrest in Chad and urging the neighboring country to take up what’s best for Chad and Chadians.
The joint statement urged for dialogue and responsibility to preserve Chad’s sovereignty, security and unity of territory as well as the security of the region.
It also called for a constructive dialogue among all parties away from force, hailing the role of the late President Idriss Deby in achieving peace and stability in the region as well as in fighting terrorist groups.
The joint statement reiterated the need to activate the agreement for cooperation in security and border monitoring on the joint borders of Libya, Chad, Sudan and Niger that was signed in 2018.
Libya, Sudan and Niger urged the African Security and Peace Council to hold an emergency session and take measures to alleviate the tension in the region.
