President Jonathan Heads To Chad For Talks On Terrorism

President Goodluck Jonathan leaves Abuja, the Nigerian capital Monday for Ndjamena in Chad for talks on cooperation against terrorism with the country’s President, Idriss Deby.

The talks in Ndjamena with President Deby, who is also the current chairman of the African Union’s Peace and Security Council, follow their discussions in Nairobi last week on the sidelines of the African Union Peace and Security Council Summit.

The discussion will further the actualization of agreements for greater cooperation against insurgents and terrorists reached by Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon at a meeting in Paris earlier this year.

Their talks are expected to lead to the strengthening of the Paris Accord on joint border patrols, intelligence sharing and the prevention of the illicit movement of terrorists, criminals, arms and ammunition across shared borders.
