Chad’s new head of state, Mahamat Idriss Déby, President of the Transitional Military Council (TMC), has met with Angola’s President Joao Lourenco during a visit in Luanda on Wednesday.
Chad’s political and security situation has been dwindling following the death of the re-elected President Idriss Deby Itno in April.
Angola currently leads the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region, a security organisation that brings together the heads of state of the region.
Chad is not a member and was only invited earlier this year by Angola to a summit.
Relations between the two countries have been strengthened in areas such as oil, energy, transport, finance and agriculture.
As part of a USD 100 million debt settlement agreement between the two countries, Angola is expected to obtain 75,000 head of cattle from Chad over a five-year period.
