Cairo – The High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, is set to participate in a quadrilateral meeting that will take place in Cairo on Sunday, to discuss the situation in Libya, according to state-run media outlet EGY News.
Mogherini said on Friday that the aim of the meeting is to coordinate work and support regional and UN efforts for the process of political transition in Libya.
The meeting will be hosted by the Arab League and will be attended by officials from the African Union and the UN envoy to Libya in order to discuss updates of the Libyan situation.
The meeting also came after an invitation made by the secretary general of the Arab League, Ahmed Abul Gheit, during the closing of the 147th session of the Arab League Foreign Ministers Council that took place in early March.
Cairo’s quadrilateral meeting is a part of Egypt’s continuous efforts to support Libya.
Egypt has actively sought a solution to the Libyan turmoil over the past few months, which has increased over the past few years following the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi, as militants have taken over several areas in Libya.
Eleven candidates have been approved to run for French president, the country's Constitutional Council announced today, a month before the vote.
In an essay published today on Times of Malta, Richard Galustian thinks that Libyan strong military leader Khalifa Haftar has more chances to control the war-torn country.
Galustian mentioned Theodore Karasik, writing in Al-Arabiya raises questions about Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar’s anticipated offensive against the Libyan capital, Tripoli. While Karasik is spot on, let me add some additional context to the Libyan army commander’s position and consequences in Libya today.
He proceeded: Haftar leads the Libyan National Army (LNA) in the east of the country and is a close ally of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives, a rival to the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) which is on life support. Complicating matters is the General National Congress (GNC) which holds several Tripoli ministries.
He added: Haftar’s anticipated offensive was short-circuited for several reasons. First, Italy flipped sides against Haftar to get back at Egypt for the killing of Italian graduate student Giulio Regeni in September 2016 and its impact on Rome-Cairo relations. Rome was backing Cairo and Haftar up until recently.
