The leadership of the Chadian-Sudanese joint forces is proceeding with the implementation of the security protocol signed between the two countries, as required, along the common border. Brigadier General Ahmed Mohamed Awad El Karim, the overall commander the Chadian-Sudanese force, said that these forces are now deployed in various locations to implement the terms of the security protocol signed between the two countries.
