Statements by the Spokesperson


Today Chad is in mourning. The triple attack which killed 27 people and injured 80 in the Lake Chad area is a threat to the stability of the country and the region.

The European Union extends its condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the people and the Chadian authorities.

The EU remains mobilised against this terrorist threat alongside Chad and the countries of the region. 

It is prepared to use all the tools at its disposal to help in the fight against terrorism and to ensure the security of the Sahel region. 

This was the message conveyed by the HR/VP Federica Mogherini during her meeting with the President of Chad, Idriss Déby, and the Heads of State of the G5 Sahel countries at the G5 Sahel Summit in N'Djamena on 20 November
