Misurata and eastern region delegations meet in Cairo for reconciliation
Egypt hosted over the past three days two delegations from the Libyan eastern region of Barqa and the northwestern port city of Misrata to outline a roadmap for inter-Libyan national reconciliation, the Egyptian army said in a statement on Thursday.
Led by Egypt’s Chief of Staff Mahmoud Hegazy, the Egyptian Committee on Libya held separate talks with the two delegations, followed by joint talks with their representatives without preconditions, said military spokesman Tamer al-Refaay in the statement.
The participants agreed on a time-scheduled roadmap including mechanisms for future meetings “in order to achieve true reconciliation that enhances means of coexistence between Libyans, end the state of polarization and restore social unity in Libya,” he added.
The discussions showed agreement among Libyan factions on maintaining Libya’s unity and sovereignty, rejecting all forms of foreign interference in Libya’s domestic affairs, fighting all kinds of terrorism and working on the establishment of a modern civil state based on peaceful power transition.
