Chad president to make first Israel visit on Sunday – Israeli PM’s office


JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Chadian President Idriss Deby will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Sunday, the first such visit by a leader of the Muslim central African nation, which severed bilateral ties in 1972, Netanyahu’s office said.

“This is an historic meeting. This is the first visit of a Chad president in Israel since the establishment of the state (of Israel). It follows many diplomatic efforts led by Prime Minister Netanyahu in the last few years,” Netanyahu’s office said in a statement.
