Fayez Al-Sarraj used visit as an opportunity to blame Marshall Kalifa Haftar for engaging foreign powers and mercenaries against GNA, being sole internationally recognized authority in Libya.
According to our Arab journalists Al-Sarraj said he represents “legitimate and internationally recognized” government of #Libya, defending his right to sign agreements with third parties.
“With Mr Fayez Mustafa Al-Sarraj, Chairman of the Presidential Council of Libya and Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord, we examined the latest developments in the situation in Libya. I reiterated the call for an immediate end to the military conflict, which is only bringing mourning and suffering to the civilian population. The solution to the crisis cannot be a military one; it can only be through a political process bringing together all parts of the country, under the auspices of the United Nations and without any external interference. The EU is ready to play its role in fostering dialogue between all the main actors. We are committed to supporting the efforts of the EU High Representative Josep Borrell for a peaceful solution in Libya under the framework of the Berlin process” the statement of the President David Sassoli reads.
