    N’Djamena, Chad – (African Boulevard News) – Chadian President Mahamat Idriss Déby has called on France to conduct reconnaissance flights along the Sudanese border due to fears of rearmament and the organization of armed groups hostile to the government from Darfur.

    President Déby’s call to the French government comes amid growing concerns of increased insecurity along Chad’s eastern border with Sudan. This move is seen as a preemptive measure to curb any potential threats arising from the neighboring conflict.

    The French-led Operation Barkhane has deployed a significant number of troops to Chad and neighboring countries to combat terrorism and instability since 2014. However, President Déby’s request for reconnaissance flights could signal a need for additional resources to protect Chad’s eastern border.

    According to local sources, the Chadian military has already increased its presence along the border to counter any potential threat. In addition, the Chadian government has been actively engaging with its Sudanese counterpart to address cross-border security challenges.

    Chad has a long history of conflict with neighboring Sudan, where Darfur’s ongoing conflict has fueled several rebel groups seeking to topple the government. The Chadian government has previously accused Sudan of providing support to these groups.

    The Chadian president’s call for action comes at a time when the region is facing significant security challenges, with recent reports of rebel incursions in eastern Chad. In addition, the ongoing conflict in neighboring Libya has further exacerbated the security situation in the region.

    International stakeholders have expressed their support for President Déby’s call to address security threats in the region. This move is seen as an essential step towards creating a secure and stable environment for economic development and investments in Chad and the neighboring countries.

    In conclusion, Chad’s call for French reconnaissance flights along the Sudanese border is a necessary measure to curb potential threats arising from the ongoing conflict in Darfur. The move is seen as a proactive step towards addressing security challenges in the region and ensuring stability and economic development. Chad’s government is committed to working with international partners to create a peaceful environment in the region.
