Chad’s Deby: Southern Libya has become hotbed for chaos and terrorism

Head of Chad’s Transitional Military Council, Mohamed Idriss Deby, said that southern Libya has become a space for chaos and a hotbed for terrorists and criminal gangs due to the proliferation of weapons of all kinds, as he put it.

This came in Deby’s speech before the 16th extraordinary summit of the African Union, held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, on Friday and Saturday, which was devoted to the issue of terrorism and the unconstitutional changes of regimes in Africa.

When addressing the seriousness of the security situation prevailing in the Sahel region in general and Chad in particular, Deby considered that it was caused by the spread of terrorism and the illegal trade in weapons of all kinds, ammunition and drugs, alleging that the overall destabilization of the Sahel region and the threat to its security is a direct result of the Libyan crisis.
