GNA Interior Minister Meets Egyptian Officials in Cairo


The Interior Minister of the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA), Fathi Bashagha, has travelled to Cairo, and met with high-ranking Egyptian officials. They are believed to have discussed the withdrawal of militias and mercenaries from Libya.

Sources explained that this visit comes as a prelude to subsequent visits by officials of the GNA to Egypt in the coming weeks. Cairo recently hosted the head of the Libyan Parliament, Ageela Saleh, who held a session with senior officials.

It is expected that Cairo will present its vision for Libya to Bashagha. This includes the dismantling of militias, removal of foreign mercenaries, and barring extremist elements from integrating into any official institutions. The sources added that Bashagha will discuss the withdrawal of the militias from Sirte and Al-Jufra, as well as discuss joint security meetings between all Libyan parties.

Yesterday evening, the United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) announced the end of the Ghadames meeting between the delegations of the Libyan National Army (LNA), and the Government of National Accord (GNA). A full agreement was reached on the terms of implementing the ceasefire agreement, and the return of all forces to their respective camps.
