Chad: Mahamat Idriss Déby grateful to Qatar’s Emir

Chadian leader Mahamat Idriss Déby has thanked Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani for agreeing to hold peace talks between government and rebel groups.

President Déby, who heads Chad’s Transitional Military Council, said that a delegation from Chad was currently in Doha to meet Qatari officials to prepare for the reconciliation talks.

The Chadian leader said he hoped the talks would lead to an agreement on disarming rebel groups, some of which are based in neighbouring Libya.

Mahamat Idriss Deby became the interim leader of Chad after the sudden death of his father Idriss Deby Itno.
