President Muhammadu Buhari this afternoon, met with the United States Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

With the stop, Tillerson became the highest-ranking USA official ever to visit Chad.

Both oil-producing countries are struggling to contain the Islamist Boko Haram insurgency.

"As our work continues to end terrorism, those who sought to divide us here have failed", said Tillerson.

"We have seen this occur in other countries that were not so careful and as a result they got themselves in a situation where they awfully lost control of their infrastructure, lost the ownership and the operation of it".

The United States has yet to hear back from North Korea about its proposal for a summit, which President Donald Trump accepted last week, Washington's top diplomat said Monday.

Supreme Court allows 'living will' with strict guidelines

Tillerson travelled to Chad on Monday morning to meet President Idriss Deby, an important American ally whose military is battling al Qaeda and Islamic State-affiliated groups in the Sahel region.

In the case of the elephants, conservationists appeared to have a powerful ally in President Donald Trump, who intervened personally previous year to stop the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from lifting the Obama-era ban on tusks imported from Zambia and Zimbabwe.

"The president expressed his incomprehension with respect to this measure and he does hope Chad will be dropped soon from this list", Cherif said. He says he believes those steps will "allow us to begin to normalize the travel relationship with Chad". There will be a report later this month and Trump will review the issue in April.

Nonetheless, the trip hasn't been easy for Tillerson.

Chad is an important US ally in the fight against Islamist groups in West Africa and the report will be reviewed by President Donald Trump next month.
