Purported U.S. Embassy Statement Dated February 21, 2020

The Embassy of the United States is aware that a press statement issued by the Embassy on June 7, 2019, has been altered with a new date and circulated to Chadian media outlets.  The Embassy has not re-issued the June 7, 2019 statement and the purported statement dated February 21, 2020 was not issued by the Embassy.

The Embassy of the United States reminds journalists and members of the public that all Embassy press statements are posted in English and French on the Embassy’s website at https://td.usembassy.gov/news-events, and in English, French, and Arabic on the Embassy’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ndjamena.usembassy/.  Any press statement purporting to come from the Embassy of the United States that has not been posted on our website and Facebook page is not an official statement from the Embassy.
