Chad: Mahamat Idriss Déby, launched an urgent appeal to the political-military groups to come back to the national dialogue

In his speech on the occasion of Chad’s national holiday on Tuesday evening, August 10, the president of the transitional military council, Mahamat Idriss Déby, launched “an urgent appeal to the political-military groups to reconsider their position and come back to us for a collective impulse. This is an important gesture as the agenda remains unchanged and mediation and facilitation efforts continue.
This is undoubtedly “a step forward,” confirmed the government spokesman. Abderaman Koulamallah assures us that this hand is extended to all political and military groups, including the FACT movement. For the first time, the authorities are stating this directly. If they do not want to dwell on this subject, the participation in the national dialogue of the rebel group that caused the death of Idriss Déby raised questions.
On the FACT side, find a political solution to the conflict remains unchanged, assures its spokesman. “We are not warring parties,” he insists. But for Kingabe Ogouzeime de Tapol, guarantees are necessary. Among the conditions put forward: a general amnesty law, or a committee to organize the dialogue that includes the different sensibilities.
