Chadian president Idriss Deby Itno arrived Thursday in the Libyan capital of Tripoli for the " officially signing ceremony" of the peace agreement concluded on Oct. 3 with the four main rebel groups in eastern Chad, according to a statement issued by Chadian president's office.

Rebel representatives arrived in Libya on Tuesday, while others have played down the agreement brokered by Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi.

The Union of Forces for Democracy and Development (UFDD) led by general Mahamat Nouri has described the agreement as a simple " declaration of principle," while the head of the Rally of Forces for Change (RCF) Timan Erdimi affirmed Tuesday that the agreement was "null and void," and announced the resumption of the "armed struggle."

Chadian authorities on their part have asserted that the agreement is "final." Its officially signing, initially slated for Oct. 20, was postponed "due to scheduling reasons," according to the government.

The document, which is yet to be made public, calls on different warring parties to integrate their troops into the government forces, but modalities of this integration, which are subject to divergent interpretations, have not been defined.
