Saturday 21 January 2017

According to high-profile Egyptian sources, Cairo will host a meeting between the leader of the Operation Dignity, Khalifa Haftar, and the Prime Minister of the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Al-Serraj.

“The meeting will try to build bridges between the two parties and will aim at finding a solution for the Libyan political crisis.” The sources added.

Upon his last visit to Cairo, days ago, Haftar express willingness to sit with Al-Serraj, the sources said on Saturday, adding that Al-Serraj said he supports removing (Article No. 8) from the Libyan Political Agreement.

Article No. 8 is related to appointment of high-ranking and supreme military positions in the Libyan government.

The sources also said that Egypt is trying to bridge the gap among the conflicting parties in Libya so that the country retrieves its stability soon.

Headed by the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Sokri, a meeting for the neighbouring countries of Libya kicked off in Cairo Saturday to try to find a suitable and common ground among Libya’s political factions so that they can all agree on implementing the Skhirat agreement.
