Sudanese FM Stresses Importance of Libyan Stability for Africa


On Saturday, Sudan’s Foreign Minister-designate, Omar Kamaruddin, said that the stability of Libya is important and constitutes an integral part of stability of the Sahel, Sahara region, and North Africa.

In press statements, Kamaruddin said that the stability of the Libyan state will also contribute to enhancing efforts to stop illegal immigration, violence, and violations of law.

He stressed that all repercussions from the Libyan conflict were greatly suffered by the neighbouring countries. He indicated that Sudan and Egypt are jointly coordinating in the face of all security threats and exerting efforts to stop the war in all regional countries.

He explained that Sudan believes that restoring the Libyan national state should be the work of its own people through ending divisions and hostilities, stopping wars, and reaching compromises between the two Libyan warring sides.

Libya’s warring sides, during their political dialogue in Tunisia, agreed to hold national parliamentary and presidential elections on December 24, 2021.

The agreement was reached during UN-sponsored talks in Tunisia between representatives of the Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, and the GNA.

The participants agreed to establish a new Presidential Council and executive body to manage the transition period and hold national elections, according to Stephanie Williams, Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya.

Libya has been torn by a civil war since the ouster of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
