During his meeting with the French ambassador to Libya, Mostafa Mihraje, the Deputy Head of the Presidential Council, Mossa Al-Koni, received on Monday an official invitation to participate in the World Humanitarian Conference on Sudan, which will be held in the French capital, Paris, in mid-April.

The French ambassador expressed France's gratitude for the participation of the Presidential Council in this important global event that will bring together the relevant regional and international parties, explaining that the goal of holding the conference is to coordinate among various international and regional initiatives that seek to resolve the crisis that has been troubling Sudan since the outbreak of armed clashes between the conflicting parties. 

Al-Koni explained that what is happening in Sudan or any of the neighboring countries directly affects the security and stability of Libya. He pointed out that both parties to the conflict were received in a neutral manner recently in Tripoli to find urgent and effective ways out of the conflict.

During the meeting with the French ambassador, Al-Koni addressed “the humanitarian conditions resulting from the crisis and the repercussions of armed clashes on residents who were forced to flee to neighboring countries, including Libya, where the border areas are witnessing an influx of large numbers of Sudanese citizens.”

He stressed that some internal and closed areas of Sudan, such as Darfur, fundamentally need to use the border entrance with Libya, which constitutes one of the most important ports of entry for delivering humanitarian aid to the people of the region.

Last month, Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah met with the Sudanese Army Commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the Commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, in the capital, Tripoli, in order to listen to them directly, with the aim of Libya’s contribution to supporting a solution between the conflicting parties in Sudan.
