Tripoli, 20 June 2014:
The US and British Special Envoys flew out of Tripoli today reportedly reassured by . . .[restrict]three days talking to a wide range of political players that Libya is committed to national dialogue.
A diplomatic source told the Libya Herald that America’s David Satterfield and the UK’s Jonathan Powell had come to confirm that the dialogues agreed on in April, when Powell last visited, were still in order.
“The need was to make sure that the links that they had made with various parties were still valid” said the diplomat. “They were reassured they were”.
In Tripoli there were meetings that included Prime Minister Abdullah Thinni, Fadeel Lameen, chairman of the National Dialogue Preparatory Commission (NDPC) and the head of the Muslim Brotherhood, Bashir Kubti. Discussions were held on the phone with Mustafa Abdul Jalil in Beida and political parties and representatives of civil societies in the east of the country.
As far as the Americans and British are concerned, the way has now been cleared for further dialogue after the elections.
