Egypt: Al-Sisi meets with Haftar and Saleh to discuss developments in Libya

Egypt, Cairo
September 23, 2020 at 22:53 GMT +00:00 · Published

Egyptian President Abdul Fatah al-Sisi met with the chief of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalifa Haftar at the al-Ittihadiya Palace in Cairo on Wednesday. President of the Libyan House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, and Abbas Kamel, head of Egypt's General Intelligence Service, also participated in the meeting.

During the meeting, the leaders reportedly discussed the latest developments in Libya, efforts to implement the ceasefire, as well as pushing forward the UN-brokered peace talks.

On Tuesday, in a recorded speech addressed to the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly, al-Sisi said that his country is committed to cleanse Libya from "terrorist organizations and militias, put an end to the blatant interference by some regional powers."

Libya has been torn by conflict since the ousting of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The country has recently been split into areas controlled by the Government of National Accord [GNA] in Tripoli and the northwest, and territories held by the eastern-based [LNA] in Benghazi, led by Haftar.
