Chad - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (27.09.17)


Q - Chad : What is your reaction to President Trump’s decision to ban Chadian nationals from entering the United States, because, according to the US President, Chad has refused to share information on terrorism with Washington D.C. and has not taken sufficient counter-terrorism measures?

A - We were surprised at the decision by the United States to extend its ban on entering the country to Chadian nationals.

Chad is a key partner in the fight against terrorism, which from the outset has been working alongside France and has paid a heavy price in this fight. In this regard, France hopes that the United States and Chad, which are two allied and partner countries, will quickly reach a solution in order to lift this ban.
