Egypt Accuses Libya of Aggression in Chad

United Press International

Egypt on Thursday strongly condemned Libya for aggression against Chad and renewed its support for the government of President Hissen Habre.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said a week of fighting between Libyan troops and former Chadian rebels in northern Chad has posed a threat to the African nation's sovereignty and unity.

"Egypt strongly condemns the Libyan aggression in northern Chad and is watching with concern the developments which are escalating tensions in the friendly African nation," the spokesman said.
