The Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Vincenzo Grassi, received today the Secretary of State for International Partnerships of the Republic of Chad, Madeleine Alingue’, accompanied by a ministerial delegation as well as representatives of UNHCR and UNDP in the African country.

In the framework of her meetings in Geneva with the main European donors, the Chadian Secretary of State expressed warm appreciation for the contribution of the Italian Development Cooperation in the sector of child food security, through public and private initiatives, recalling the precious role of many Italian civil society organizations. Ms. Alingue’ also called for a strengthening of bilateral relations with Italy, both to mitigate the consequences of the humanitarian crisis in Eastern Chad, caused by the civil conflict underway in Sudan since last April, and to define new political and economic cooperation initiatives of mutual interest, in the context of the political transition ongoing in Chad since 2021, which entails the holding of a constitutional referendum and presidential elections in 2024.

Ambassador Grassi indicated that the Italian Presidency of the G7 in 2024 and the Italy-Africa Conference, scheduled for next January, will serve as a springboard to promote Italy’s commitment towards the Sahel countries, raising awareness among the international community on the definition of an equal partnership to address the issues of economic development, climate change mitigation and orderly and sustainable management of migratory flows.
