Agenda of Mrs. Kitoko Gata, Chad's new Ambassador to the United States
Washington, D.C. – Three days after taking office as Chad's ambassador to the United States, Ms. Kitoko Gata spoke to the press today, June 7, 2023, to a group of young students from the popular Virginia-based political media outlet, Politico Media Source.

Ms. Kitoko Gata expressed confidence that Chad can play a major role in Africa's development and in promoting cooperation with the United States.

The students were delighted to have had the opportunity to speak directly with the ambassador and learn more about the reality of the situation in Chad.
