The Deputy Head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Abdullah Al-Lafi, attended in Leiden, Holland, a meeting for law and reconciliation in Libya. The meeting was organized by the society and law studies center of Benghazi University and Leiden University.

Al-Lafi stressed that the reconciliation project is very important and must receive appropriate focus, as it is linked to providing security, the success of the political process, and social and economic stability. He added that this is why the Presidential Council focused on reconciliation.

Al-Lafi indicated that Libya is on the threshold of completing an important stage of a real reconciliation project based on a clear analysis of the causes of the conflict. He commended the role of the Netherlands in supporting the efforts of the Presidential Council in the reconciliation file.

He hailed the University of Leiden for hosting the meeting, and for their support for the efforts and work of Libyan researchers and experts from the University of Benghazi in their in-depth research on reconciliation, law and society, which are the basis for the work of the Presidential Council.

Al-Lafi praised the role of the African Union, the UN mission and a number of friend countries for their technical and advisory support for the reconciliation project led and owned by Libyans.

On the sidelines of the two-day meeting, a Memorandum of Understanding between Benghazi University and Leiden University was renewed.
