The new leader of Chad is in neighbouring Niger where he's had a one-on-one meeting with the president, weeks after being appointed.
Gen Mahamat Déby Itno was installed as leader of Chad's transitional military council after his father - President Idriss Déby - died from battlefield injuries while fighting rebels close to the Libyan border.
On Monday Gen Déby Itno thanked President Mohamed Bazoum for a warm welcome, calling him his "brother".
"We came here to reaffirm our friendship and to thank President Bazoum for his support since the death of the Marshal - may God have mercy on his soul.
Both Chad and Niger are among the Western-backed "G5" countries fighting Islamist militants in the Sahel region.
"We have a force here in Niger in Tera - a contingent of the G5 Sahel - we came to support them, knowing that they lost the Marshal of Chad, supreme chief of the army - we came to offer our condolences and to give them moral support," said Gen Déby Itno.
