Benghazi, 4 June 2017:

A high level African Union delegation wrapped up its four-day mission to Libya by meeting armed forces commander-in-chief Khalifa Hafter in Benghazi.

Throughout their various talks, the AU members have been seeking to organise a gathering of all Libya’s political players under the organisation’s auspice.

The eight members of the AU’s Libya committee were led by Jean-Claude Gakasso of Congo (Brazzaville) and included foreign ministers from Algeria, Guinea, Mauritania, Niger, Tunisia and South Africa and the AU’s peace commissioner Ismail Sharqi.

They began their trip on 30 May with a briefing from UNSMIL chief Martin Kobler. Among their calls in Tripoli they met Presidency Council head Faiez Serraj and State Council leader Abdulrahman Sewehli. In Beida they saw House of Representatives President Ageela Saleh.

The only details released of yesterday’s talks wth Hafter were that they had ranged over political developments and also the fight against terrorism.
