The Foreign Affairs Adviser in Al-Thinni government, Abdelmajeed Emligta, said Al-Thinni government and the Tobruk-based House of Representatives intend to go to Iran to seek legitimacy from there.
In a statement Saturday, reported by Al-Bayda-based Libyan News Agency, Emligta considered the role of the Arab League toward Libya’s crisis has been disappointing as it abstained from supporting the “legitimate bodies of the HoR and its Al-Thinni government, according to him.
He added that the Al-Thinni government and the HoR intend to send a delegation to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation by an Iranian mediation so that it resists attempts to impose the GNA on Libyans, according to him.
“The Arab League is very disappointing.” Emligta added, referring to the invitation given to the Head of the UN-backed Presidential Council of the GNA, Fayez AL-Serraj, and his Foreign Ministyer, Mohammed Sayala, by the Arab League to attend the Arab Foreign Ministers Meeting in Cairo Saturday, ignoring Al-Thinni’s Foreign Minister, Muhammad Al-Dayeri.
