Israel in ‘new partnership’ with Chad

Chad and Israel have renewed diplomatic ties in what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has described as “a partnership… to forge a prosperous and secure future for our countries”.

His comments came during a brief visit to Chad where he was welcomed by President Idriss Deby.

In recent years, Israel has made a big effort to improve diplomatic relations with several African countries.

Chad, which has a majority Muslim population, cut ties in 1972.
