    Background: LIBREVILLE, GABON

    Chad's new head of state, Hissene Habre, announced July 12 his country had made a major step forward national reconciliation. He made the announcement after returning from a meeting in Gabon with the military leader of Southern Chad Wadal Abdelkader Kamougue. Colonel Kamougue was vice-president during the former regime of President Goukouni Oueddei, ousted a month ago by Mr. Hissene Habre. The meeting, in Libreville, was initiated by Gabon's President El Hadj Omar Bongo. Mr. Habre said he would always leave the gate of reconciliation open to various groups in the political life of Chad, but it may take some time to realise national unity.
