PM Netanyahu To Fly To Chad ‘Soon’ To Re-establish Diplomatic Ties

Following his third meeting in two days in Jerusalem with the leader of Chad, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced that he will “soon” make a reciprocal visit to N’Djamenabe in order to formally announce the re-establishment of bilateral ties. Chad is on the front lines in Africa in the battle against Islamic terrorism, and the desire for Israeli expertise to counter this threat is one of the foremost reasons Idriss Déby moved to renew relations after 46 years. The Muslim-majority country, which in 1972 shunned the Jewish state at the behest of then-Libyan dictator Moammar Qaddafi, also is interested in Israel’s know-how in the fields of agriculture, border protection, technology, solar energy, water and health. The upcoming trip will be Netanyahu’s fourth to Africa since 2016, when he became the first Israeli leader to visit the continent in three decades.
