Libyan PM to Visit Morocco & Egypt on Sunday


After a trip to London, where he met his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, the Libyan Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdelhamid Al-Dbaiba is set to visit Morocco on Sunday. This will be his first official visit there since taking up his post in March, according to the Africa Intelligence’s reports.

The French website indicated that Al-Dbaiba will meet Moroccan Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita in Rabat, and added that he will then go to Cairo, without providing further details.

Notably, the Libyan Prime Minister held talks with his British counterpart on Thursday in London to stress the need for the withdrawal of all foreign forces and mercenaries from Libya and the unification of the army.

Dbaiba arrived in London coming from Germany, where he attended the Berlin Conference II on Libya.

The meeting followed up on a January 2020 conference where leaders agreed to respect an arms embargo and to push the country’s warring parties to reach a full cease-fire. Germany has tried to act as an intermediary.

Participants welcomed progress since the process was launched. A cease-fire agreement concluded in October included a demand that all foreign fighters and mercenaries leave Libya within 90 days led to a deal on the elections in December and the transitional government that took office in February.
