National Reconciliation Conference unsuccessful due to LNA comments
The National Reconciliation Conference in Nalut has come to an end shortly after it got started because of the interruption of some attendees who were mad at the HoR’s representative’s words in which he praised the achievements of the Libyan National Army, hinting at Khalifa Haftar’s Dignity Operation seizure of oil terminals.
All of the discussions scheduled to take effect in the conference were called off as most of the attendees, mainly from western cities like Misurata and Tripoli, stopped Abu Bakir Al-Ghazali, the HoR rep., from continuing his praise of the what he called the LNA and the military officers whom he said are defending Libya against terrorist, finishing by saying that they are hailed for their victories that are similar to those made by Omar Al-Mukhtar back in the Italian occupation era.
With those comments, many attendees stopped Al-Ghazali from pursuing his speech and left, which forced the host of the conference to read the final statement of the “just-started” conference and announce its end.
