N'Djamena, June 3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 4th Jun, 2021 ) :Chad has sent men and material to reinforce the border with the Central African Republic despite agreeing to jointly investigate a car attack that left six Chadian soldiers dead, a provincial governor said Thursday.
"Nothing will be like before," he vowed, noting five of the six dead had been "kidnapped and executed".
"The bodies of the executed soldiers have not been moved," and are still in CAR, he said.
CAR has put the blame on rebels it said its forces had been pursuing.
Tensions appeared to have eased after the two countries' foreign ministers met Tuesday.
The two parties "underlined the urgency of clarifying the circumstances in which this attack took place" and agreed to set up an independent international commission of inquiry." They also agreed to work together to strengthen security along the border.
The inquiry was to involve the United Nations, the African Union and the Economic Community of Central African States (CEEAC).
The border incident has placed the spotlight on the occasionally fraught relations between Chad -- ruled by a junta that took power just weeks ago -- and the CAR, an unstable country battling powerful armed groups.
