Comments Off on Haftar rejects meeting with GNA Prime Minister, Al-Serraj in Cairo

The leader of the eastern forces of Operation Dignity, which is an operation appointed by the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR), Khalifa Haftar, refused to meet the Government of National Accord’s Prime Minister, Fayez Al-Sirraj, in Cairo, Egypt.

The meeting, according to Egyptian sources, was scheduled to be held on Tuesday morning, however, Haftar seems to have refused to meet with Al-Serraj and the meeting was delayed.

The sources added that Haftar rejected to meet Al-Sirraj after he finished his prolonged discussions with the Egyptian Chief of Staff, Mahmoud Hijazi.

Egypt is trying to gather all the Libyan factions on one table for dialogue and a peceful solution to the crisis.

To that end, the HoR’s Speaker, Agilah Saleh and several MPs are expected to arrive in Cairo today in an attempt to amend the UN-brokered GNA and make it more inclusive.
