Attempts made to revive Libya-Libya dialogue
- Five members from the internationally-recognized House of Representatives (HoR) in Tobruk flew to Tripoli in a move to revive what is called the Libya-Libya dialogue.
|A five-member delegation from the House of Representatives has arrived in Tripoli hoping to revive the “Libya-Libya” dialogue launched in December 2015. The group was active around the same time as the UN-brokered Libya Political Agreement (LPA) was signed in Skhirat, Morocco, on December 17. Neither the HoR nor the rival government in Tripoli, the General National Congress (GNC), signed the LPA. The Libya-Libya dialogue was designed to achieve a political solution through negotiations only with groups from the rival parliaments, without the mediation of the UN or foreign pressure. The group appeared to lose momentum and relevance once the Skhirat agreement was signed and the process of setting up the Government of National Accord (GNA) associated with the LPA forged ahead. However, now that the GNA and its supporters have been unable to gain a vote of confidence in the HoR, the alternative represented by the Libya-Libya dialogue appears to be making somewhat of a comeback.|
I don’t think there is any solution to the Libyan crisis but overall reconciliation, away from intervention by foreigners who do not want good for Libya.The war on terror needs a national unity government backed by all Libyans with a clearly defined mandate which is also prepared to cooperate with the international war on terrorism”.In contrast, Mohamed Sawan, who heads the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Justice and Construction Party, explicitly backs the GNA. In conversation with Peter Bodde, the U.S. ambassador to Libya he claimed to be in favor of the GNA and thought the HoR would ultimately approve it.
