Chargé d’affaires meets with African Union High Representative

Chargé d’affaires David Gilmour met with African Union High Representative Basile Ikouébé to discuss how the AU is supporting Chad’s transition. The United States believes that the AU plays an integral role in this process, and encourages consistent, measurable steps toward an inclusive national dialogue followed by a new constitution and free and fair elections by October 2022. The transition presents a unique opportunity for Chad to strengthen its democratic institutions and respect for rule of law while promoting peace and prosperity for all the people of Chad.
