Libyan Foreign Minister briefs Arab counterparts on new stability initiative
The Libyan Foreign Minister, Najla Al-Mangoush, presented Tuesday at a consultation meeting on the Arab League ministerial level a new initiative for stability in Libya that will be officially presented to the Berlin II Conference on June 23.
In an opening speech at the Qatar-hosted meeting, Al-Mangoush said the initiative is based on full implementation of ceasefire and setting a clear deadline for the withdrawal of foreign forces and mercenaries, reopening the coastal road, unifying military and other state sovereign institutions.
She said Libya is going through a new phase with a new executive authority that is working to achieve peace, use dialogue to resolve conflicts and prepare for December elections, hoping that this new phase has ended the disagreements regarding Libya among Arab League members.
Al-Mangoush said the settlement process is facing lots of challenges but Libya will implement the roadmap of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in full, saying her government prioritizes sovereignty, exit of foreign forces and mercenaries as well as achieving national reconciliation, which has already started by the Presidential Council's decision to form High National Reconciliation Commission.
