The Head of the Transitional Military Council - President of Chad, Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, met at the presidential palace in the Chadian capital, N'Djamena on Saturday with the Libyan National Security Advisor Ibrahim Bushnaf and his accompanying delegation.

Déby discussed with Bushnaf the executive steps for the establishment of the National Security Council in the countries of the Community of Sahel–Saharan States.

Chad is chairing the current session of the community's presidency, as its next summit will be held next May.

President Déby reaffirmed his support for the Libyan project to establish the council, pointing out that he will work with the heads of states to make the idea a reality.

Déby stressed that Chad will spare no effort to restore stability to Libya, saying that its stability is part of Chad's stability, and pointed out that the solution in Libya will only be African, since most of the countries involved in the Libyan issue have their own political, economic and other agendas, which impedes solutions.

The Libyan National Security Advisor commended the warm Chadian reception, stressing that Libya won't hesitate to support Chadian presidency, government and people in a way that enhances bilateral relations with Libya.
