  • Description

    President Francois Tombalbaye of Chad arrived in Paris on Wednesday (26 Aug) for talks with French President George Pompidou. The two leaders are expected to discuss France's reported wish to reduce its forces helping to put down a rebellion in Northern Chad.

    The African president accompanied by top aides made no statement on his arrival and a spokesman said he would have nothing to say before meeting President Pompidou. He is expected to spend three days in Paris.

    There are about 2,500 French troops in Chad helping to crush a rebellion by Northern Nomads.

    French officials have made clear their wish to reduce these forces as soon as possible and press reports this week have said the government intends to remove all but a token force by next summer.
