"That's encouraging, dear Chancellor, that that discussion that you should have with her peers here in Europe and in America, to be able to allow the African Union a more forward role in trying to find solution to the crisis in Libya," said Dankwa.

"If that solution is found, it would have an immediate and direct impact on the activities of the jihadis in the Sahel. All of us know that there is a link between their activities and the crisis in Libya," he added.
