On Sunday, the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni received Abdel-Hadi Al-Hwaij, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Libyan Parliament-designated government, at the Presidential Palace in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.

During the meeting, Al-Hwaij emphasized the importance of “international communication that serves the common interests of all countries, and enhances prospects for cooperation in various fields.”

He conveyed greetings from Prime Minister of the Parliament-designate government, Osama Hammad, wishing him and the Ugandan people progress and prosperity.

He also highlighted the distinguished historical relations between the two countries, and ways to support and develop them in the service of their mutual interests.

The meeting also addressed the latest developments in the Libyan crisis, and the prospects for its resolution in the best interest of the Libyan people.

Last week, Hammad stated that the government will “leverage all its resources to support the citizens of southern Libya in every possible dimension.” Emphasising the importance of the region, Hammad stated that southern Libya, akin to other regions, “remains at the forefront of the government’s priorities.”

This affirmation was made on Sunday, during a meeting with members of the steering council of the city of Murzuq. During the interaction, Hammad delved deep into understanding the needs of the Murzuq municipality. The discourse revolved around reviewing the current status of services provided to residents, and strategies to bolster them further. Additionally, the focus was also on “expediting the wheels of development, reconstruction, and investment in the southern region.”

An essential highlight of the gathering was the discussion on the national reconciliation file. Efforts to mend past damages, and find solutions to prevailing social issues were debated. The ultimate aim remains to fortify societal peace, ensuring it manifests positively and contributes to enhancing stability in the region.

The government’s commitment to prioritizing the well-being and progress of its southern territories is a testament to its holistic approach to nation-building. As these initiatives gain traction, they are poised to pave the way for a more stable and prosperous Libya.
