Deby arrived Wednesday in Khartoum 48 hours before the 24th African Union summit in Addis Ababa on Friday.

Bashir and Deby told reporters they discussed the security situation in neighbouring countries and Nigeria where the Chadian troops took part in a military campaign involving several African armies to fight Boko Haram, a terrorist group operating in northern Ngeria.

Bashir said the talks dealt with a number of regional issues of common concern, including the situation in neighbouring countries such as Libya, Central African Republic and South Sudan. Deby, from his part, added the issue of Boko Haram.

The two president did not elaborate in their briefing about these matters.

Speaking about the Chadian-Sudanese border force established in January 2010, Bashir said it is seen as “a model praised by many African countries”.

Deby from his part added that the experience of the joint force is considered “a model in Africa and the world”.

The two countries included the CAR in the joint border force but the fall of Bozizé’s regime in March 2013 ended the experience of the tripartite force which had been initially designed to prevent cross-border attacks by rebel groups.

The Chadian president pledged to terminate the construction of a road linking the capital Ndjamena with a Sudanese road in Darfur.

The purpose of the project is to enable the land locked Chad, via the Ingaz road, to use Port Sudan on the Red See for the important and export of its products and needs.

Deby is expected to fly today to Addis Ababa to participate in AU summit for the head of states and governments.
