Israel and Chad agree to re-establish diplomatic relations

Via Africanews

Chadian president Idris Deby Itno arrived in Israel on Sunday for an official state visit. It is the first time a Chadian leader has made the trip since ties between the two were severed in the early 1970s. Reports indicate that top of the agenda was issues of security as Israel continues to help the country in the fight against northern rebels. Deby’s meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu has since led to the reestablishment of ties between the two countries.“President Déby, welcome to Israel. Welcome to Jerusalem. This is the first official visit by the President of Chad to the State of Israel. It follows a very long hiatus in our relations,” Netanyahu said in remarks to the media. “Chad is a very important country. It’s an important country in Africa. It’s an important country for Israel. And I’m delighted that we are resuming our friendship,” the premier said describing the visit as a new era for security, cooperation and peace. “President Déby and I had the opportunity to discuss the relations between our two countries and the way we can cooperate for the benefit of our peoples and for peace and for security,” he added. Chad broke ties with Israel in 1972 in the wake of its occupation of the Palestinian territories in the 1967 Middle East war. Several other African countries also adopted the same stance. Palestine is an observer at the African Union and enjoys the Union’s full support.
