Chad: Tillerson hopes for closer ties with Chad despite travel ban

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson affirmed the will for closer partnership with Chad during a press conference in N'Djamena, on Monday. Some of the topics where Tillerson hoped USA and Chad can come together on are «counterterrorism, encouraging democratic reforms and strengthening economic ties between our countries.» Tillerson noted the challenges of the African country, saying that «We... Еще know that Chad faces many security threats on each of its borders. We appreciate Chad's important role in providing security for its own citizens and its contribution to the security of its neighbours as well.» Finally, he mentioned that Chad is an important partner to the USA and the country «plays a vital role in countering terrorism and violent extremism in the Lake Chad basin and the greater Sahel». Chad is currently among the eight countries affected by Trump's travel ban that came into effect in September 2017.
