A member of the Libyan Presidential Council, Abdullah Hussein Al-Lafi, discussed with the Saudi ambassador, Muhammad bin Mahmoud Al-Ali, on Thursday, the developments of the political situation in his country.
The Presidential Council said in a statement, “Al-Lafi met with the Saudi ambassador at the Al-Lafi residence in the capital, Tunis, and they discussed issues of common interest between the two brotherly countries, and the developments of the political situation in Libya.”
Al-Lafi expressed his gratitude for the support provided by the Kingdom for the path of national unity in Libya and stability, according to the statement.
For his part, Al-Ali affirmed “the kingdom’s continued support for a political solution in Libya, and its interest in supporting the unification of institutions and ending all kinds of conflicts.”
Earlier, Al-Lafi and his accompanying delegation arrived in Tunis to hold official meetings with a number of Arab and regional parties.
Moussa Al-Koni, a member of the Libyan Presidency Council, previously attributed the failure to unify the Libyan military institutions so far to a “crisis of confidence.”
Al-Koni clarified during a press conference, on Wednesday, that there is a crisis of confidence between the two warring parties, despite the work of the Joint Military Committee, expressing his hope that actual steps will begin in the coming period to unify the army.
The Presidential Council and the transitional government are leading Libya until general elections are held next December, and they are looking into several files, most notably the preparation for polling and the unification of military institutions after years of internal fighting.
