​The Foreign Secretary is yet to meet his Chadian counterpart. The UK opened an office in N’Djamena in March 2018 enabling us to develop our dialogue with the Chadian authorities and work on our shared interest in the security, stability and prosperity of Chad and the Sahel region. The UK is concerned about the human rights situation in Chad, and continues to urge the Chadian authorities to offer all its citizens the opportunity to participate fully in the country's political, economic, cultural and religious life.
