The Head of the High Council of State (HCS) Khalid Al-Mishri, discussed with the delegation of the African Union's (AU) High-level Commission on Libya the file of national reconciliation, the participation of the HCS in the inclusive national conference for reconciliation, and the nomination of a member of the HCS to attend the preparatory meetings.

This discussion came in a meeting held by Al-Mishri at his residence in Tripoli on Tuesday, with the delegation represented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of the Congo Brazzaville Jean-Claude Gakosso, the special envoy of the Congolese President, the Director of the Office of the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Mohammed Al-Labad, and the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Wahida Al-Ayari. The delegation delivered a written letter to Al-Mishri from the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Moussa Faki.

A statement published by the Media Office of the HCS on Facebook said that Al-Mishri stressed the need to speed up the national reconciliation file, expand the circle of communication to include all Libyan parties in order to reach comprehensive solutions to the Libyan crisis, and to hold successful elections that end the transitional stages and bring the country to a stage of permanent stability.

The statement cited the African Union delegation as praising Al-Mishri's efforts in the reconciliation file, his constant support for the committee and quick response to nominating a representative of the HCS to participate in the preparatory meetings for the conference, in addition to hailing the results of the 6+6 joint committee meetings.

Earlier on Tuesday, the African delegation met with the Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, who called on the high-level committee to work closely from inside Libya and communicate with all segments of society.
