Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala said that the statement issued by the African Tripartite summit in Cairo differs from what is happening on the ground in Tripoli.

"The Cairo Tripartite declaration equated the aggressor who is bombing residential areas from the air and with Grad missiles and those who are defending the civilians and property," Sayala said, pointing out that the summit's statement ignored the invader's coup against the legitimacy of the political agreement and the disruption of the National Conference sponsored by the UN envoy Ghassan Salame, as he put it.

The statement of Cairo Tripartite summit held yesterday in Cairo called for an immediate cease-fire and the return to dialogue.
