Libya’s Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dbeiba has called for cooperation among Islamic countries in several important areas of the economy.

This came during his participation, in the capacity of Foreign Minister-designate, in the third session of the Arab Economic and Cooperation Forum with the countries of Central Asia and Azerbaijan, held in the Qatari capital, Doha, on April 29-30.

According to the media office of the Government pf National Unity, Dbeiba hailed the role of the forum in bringing viewpoints closer together and identifying aspects of cooperation between Arab countries and their Asian neighbours. 

On the other hand, Dbeiba renewed his condemnation of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, stressing the need to immediately stop the war and bring in humanitarian aid.

The first session of the forum was held about 10 years ago, in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, to deepen relations between Arab countries, Central Asian countries, and Azerbaijan, while the second session was held in 2017.
