Back to Officials


Name: Bechir, Mahamoud Adam
Current Position: Former Ambassador
Mahamoud Adam Bechir has served as Chad’s Ambassador to the United States since December 9, 2004. He is also ambassador to Canada, Mexico and Argentina. Bechir had previously served as Coordinator of the High Committee for National Demining in Chad. The previous Chadian ambassador to the US, Ahmat Soubiane, was recalled after he publically criticized Chad’s president, Idriss Déby. Having served for five years, Soubiane refused to leave the official residence. Finally, after 16 months, Bechir arrived with his cook, his lawyer, Montgomery County police and officers of the Secret Service, and Soubiane was evicted.
