    Background: A Libyan Cultural Centre has been inaugurate at N'Djamena capital of the Chad Republic by the Libyan Secretary of State for Information, Mr. Hamza Monfouz.

    The ceremony, on Wednesday (May 29), was also attended by the Chad Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Mr. Garandi Gikoa.

    One of the main features of the Cultural Centre is a fine library.

    The opening of the Cultural Centre typifies the period of better relations between Chad and Libya in the past tow years.

    Chad broke off diplomatic relations with Libya after an attempted coup d'etat in the Chad capital in which both Libya and the National Liberation Front in Chad were alleged to have been implicated.

    For a time Libya formally recognised the Liberation Front but later refused to harbour its members. Diplomatic relations were re-established in December 1972 and a co-operation agreement signed.

    About half the people of Chad are Muslims and Arabic is widely spoken.
