The Deputy Head of the Presidential Council, Mossa Al-Koni, said that there were arrangements for a visit by the Congolese President, Denis Sassou Nguesso, to Libya to discuss political developments, ways to advance the national reconciliation file, and activate the role of the African Union in this regard.

The media office of the Libyan Presidential Council said in a statement on Sunday, that Al-Koni met, on the sidelines of his participation in BRICS Summit in Johannesburg from 22 to 24 August, the Congolese President.

Al-Koni discussed with the Congolese President developments in the political situation in Libya, the file of national reconciliation, mechanisms for achieving stability in Libya, and its repercussions on the African continent and the region.

Last Thursday, on the closing day of the BRICS Summit, Al-Koni met with the Congolese President and his South African counterpart, who promised him a visit soon to Libya to discuss prospects for cooperation between the two countries.

Al-Koni headed a high-level Libyan delegation at the BRICS Summit, and during the special session on African-Chinese cooperation, he met with President Xi Jinping, who showed special interest in "development of Libyan-Chinese relations according to strategic and economic prospects under the umbrella of BRICS," according to an earlier statement by the Presidential Council.
