Prime Minister (PM) Abdul Hamid Dbeibah received the president and members of the Tuareg Social Council at his office on Monday to learn about the difficulties facing the residents of the Ghat and Ubari regions.

A statement by the PC media office said the meeting focused on two main issues, the service file and the administrative numbers of Tuareg registered with the Civil Status Authority.

PM Dbeibah said the government attaches particular importance to the south despite all the difficulties and obstacles, stressing that the national number issue remains a priority and must be addressed.
