Arab leaders at a Summit in Amman Jordan are said to have given their absolute support to the Presidency Council (PC) of the UN-brokered Government of National Accord (GNA).
|The Libya Herald also reported that the leaders would drop any links to the Tobruk-based eastern government of Abdullah al-Thinni associated with the House of Representatives (HoR). One wonders if there is any more than lip-service support being given to the GNA. Countries such as Egypt the UAE and Jordan have strong ties to the Al-Thinni government and have provided support for the commander of the eastern-based Libyan National Army commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar. Libyan sources at the summit said that support for the PC, the GNA and the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) or Shkirat agreement will be included in the summit final statement. The final statement would also call on the countries different military groups to be joined in a single body. At present that seems a vain hope and quite unrealistic.|
On Libya, the statement stressed the need to achieve security and political stability in the North African Arab nation through a national reconciliation that is based on the "Skhirat" agreement in order to preserve the country's territorial unity and cohesion. It affirmed the Arab nation's support to the Libyan people in their efforts to defeat terrorist gangs and eradicate the threat posed by terrorism to Libya and its neighbors.There is no mention of supporting the PC or GNA specifically. However the Saudi agency could have filtered this out.
