Chad has submitted a formal request to Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Ghazouani to support Chad’s candidacy of one of its citizens to assume the presidency of the African Air Navigation Security Agency.

This came during the Mauritanian president’s reception in Nouakchott with Chadian Foreign Minister Mohamed Saleh Nazif, where he handed him a message from his Chadian counterpart Mohamed Idriss Deby Itno.

After the meeting, Nazif said in a press statement: “He handed Ould Ghazouani a letter that includes two points, the first of which is related to the presidential elections in Chad, where Ghazouani, in his capacity as Chairman of the African Union, was briefed on the preliminary results of these elections.”

“The second point relates to his country’s candidacy to manage the African Air Navigation Security Agency and looks forward to Mauritania’s support for the candidacy file,” he said.

Established in 1959, the African Air Navigation Security Agency (ACASA) includes 15 African countries plus France and operates an airspace spanning more than 16 million square kilometers.
