Tunis, 10 April 2017:
House of Representatives (HoR) president Ageela Saleh has met the new head of the African Union (AU) Guinea president Alpha Condé in Conarky.
Saleh was not invited to January’s AU mini-summit in Brazzaville since the union stuck with the international script and asked Presidency Council chief Faiez Serraj to attend.
Saleh, with Beida government foreign minister Mohamed Dayri, also met the president of the AU’s Libyan crisis committee, Congo-Brazzaville president Denis Sassou Nguesso.
Afterwards the HoR briefed that both Condé and Nguesso had said that, along with their fellow AU leaders, they wanted to find a solution to the Libyan crisis. The Guinea president is reportedly planning to invite Libyan political players to Conarky for talks.
This news came from Egyptian politician and former Muslim Brotherhood member Aboul Fotouh Abdel Hady who was also at the meeting. Hady said that Saleh had explained a number of the contentious provisions in the Libyan Political Agreement and the Dialogue.
The AU has previously called on Libya’s political factions to move quickly to amend the LPA so a consensus government can be created. It has also insisted that there can be no military solution.
