UN-Backed Libya Government Announces Plans to End Crisis


Chairman of Libya’s Presidential Council in the internationally recognised Government of National Accord announced a seven-point initiative to resolve the crisis in his country.

Speaking at a press conference in Tripoli, Fayez Al-Sarraj said that since the beginning of its work and despite all the challenges, his government “has always believed that the resolution of the Libyan crisis will only be achieved through dialogue among the people of the homeland, and that this is the only way out of the crisis.”

The new initiative includes seven points, the first of which is “holding a Libyan forum in coordination with the UN mission, representing all national forces and society members who have political and social impacts.”

Since 4 April, Tripoli has been witnessing armed clashes following Brigadier General Khalifa Haftar’s launching of a military operation to take over the capital, amid widespread international condemnation.
