Chadian sources spoke on Sunday about an upcoming visit by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to the Chadian capital, N’Djamena.

France’s last military base on the African coast is located in N’Djamena after its withdrawal from other countries such as Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger.

The sources reported that arrangements are being made to receive the Russian Foreign Minister next Wednesday, as Lavrov will be the first official at this level to visit Chad after the formation of his new government and the inauguration of the new president.

For its part, Russia offered assistance to the countries of the African continent in combating terrorism, and former Chadian Foreign Minister Mohamed Salih Nazif submitted a request to Moscow to submit specific proposals in this regard.

It is expected that during the visit, a joint security agreement will be signed between Russia and Chad to combat terrorism, and to enhance military and economic cooperation between the two countries.

In a related context, the Russian side has strengthened its military presence in regions such as Niger and Central Africa, in order to confront security and terrorist challenges in the region.

During his visit, Lavrov is scheduled to discuss the security situation in the Sahel region, Libya and the Sudan war, in addition to supporting Chad in dealing with the humanitarian crisis in the east of the country.

The sources concluded that the visit also aims to encourage cooperation with the Central African government and strengthen bilateral relations between Chad and Russia.
