Diplomatic row brews as Chad orders Qatar diplomats to leave country

The government of Chad has accused Qatar of conniving with Libya to undermine its security and has thus ordered the shutting down of Qatar’s embassy, giving its diplomats 10 days to leave the country.

That much information was contained in a statement issued by the foreign ministry of Chad which said; “In order to safeguard peace and security in the region, Chad calls on Qatar to cease all actions that could undermine its security as well as those of the countries of the Lake Chad basin and the Sahel.”

The statement from Chad’s foreign ministry added that it would close its diplomatic mission in Doha and recall all personnel.

However, Qatari officials were yet to respond to the decision even as the Chadian foreign ministry did not provide any details to support the accusation levelled against the oil rich Asian country.
