Chad and Sudan have stressed the need to cooperate in enhancing joint border patrol and border protection in the fight against terrorism.
Both countries held talks at the presidential palace in Khartoum during a meeting hosted by the Chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and President of Chad’s Transitional Military Council, Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno.
Al-Burhan called for a reactivation of the security cooperation agreement signed between Sudan, Chad, Libya and Niger in the Chadian capital in 2018 to secure the border.
Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno in his contributions stressed the importance of integrating their efforts and cooperation with the African Union in fields of border protection and combating of terrorism.
He noted that both countries were passing through a transitional period and all hands to be on board.
In May 2018, Libya, Chad, Niger and Sudan signed a quartet agreement specifying deployment of forces for joint border protection and combat cross-border crimes and illegal immigration.
In September 2019, Sudan officially formed the civilian-led transitional government (CLTG) after 30 years under the regime of former President Omar al-Bashir.
In 2019, a similar commitment was agreed on when a delegation from the Sudanese Sovereign Council held talks with Chadian President Idris Deby in N’Djamena
