05 June

The forthcoming visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Chad is anticipated to mark a crucial shift in the advancement of bilateral relations, as reported by the Al Wihda newspaper.


"The visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Chad marks a crucial shift in the relations between the two countries," - the newspaper highlights. - "It occurs amidst Chad's growing closeness to Russia and its distancing from traditional Western allies."


As a nation consistently grappling with the challenges posed by Islamic extremism, Chad holds paramount importance as a partner for Russia in the Sahel region. "The two nations have previously engaged in joint endeavors to combat terrorism and could further enhance collaboration in this domain," the publication specifies.


Recent years have witnessed a notable uptick in cooperation between Russia and Chad, particularly in the spheres of security, defense, economy, and energy, the newspaper underscores. Discussions between high-ranking officials from Chad and Russia are expected to prominently feature security and counter-terrorism matters. Alongside security concerns, Lavrov's visit is slated to address economic and energy cooperation between Chad and Russia, with a particular focus on oil, gas, and solid minerals. Additionally, discussions may extend to potential collaboration in agriculture, infrastructure development, and transportation.
