The Head of the Libyan Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Al-Sirraj is visiting Malta on Monday for talks with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, the Maltese government announced, without further details.

Al-Sirraj made over the last weeks European and Arab tours to gather support for his UN-backed GNA and to receive clear-cut rejections from the player countries to the ongoing military operations and attacks against Tripoli by whom he described as “warlord and outlaw Khalifa Haftar.”

Al-Sirraj went to countries like France, Italy, Germany, UK and to the EU meeting in Brussels, and then he visited Tunisia and Algeria for regional support.

Haftar launched his attack on Tripoli on April 04, since then, over 500 have been killed, over 2300 injured, over 75.000 displaced and many houses and properties destroyed.

He visited France as well last week and met with President Emmanuel Macron, to whom he reiterated his unwillingness to commit to a ceasefire, citing the need for eliminating terrorism.

While Haftar clings to the rhetoric of fighting terrorism, Al-Sirraj told Europeans and Arabs that no talks of ceasefire can be held without the full retreat of Haftar’s forces to their previous positions as of prior to April 04.
