Pan African Resources : Libya: AU to cooperate with Arab League to resolve Libyan crisis

05/29/2014 | 01:40pm US/Eastern

Tripoli, Libya (PANA) - The African Union (AU) has expressed its determination to cooperate with the Arab League and Libya's neighbours to help resolve the political crisis in this North African country.

In a statement issued at the margins of the 17th ministerial conference of Non-Aligned Countries in Algiers, AU Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said the Pan-African organisation would intensify its consultations with the Arab League and the neighboring countries of Libya to find the ways to help the country to overcome the violence and insecurity prevalent there.

The Arab League recently appointed a special envoy of its Secretary General to help facilitate national dialogue and reconciliation in Libya.

Libya's political crisis has worsened due to the controversial appointment of Prime Minister Ahmed Maitigue.

The situation has been exacerbated by the military operation launched by retired Army General Khalifa Haftar to rid country of terrorists and extremists.

On Wednesday evening, the outgoing government justified its refusal to hand power over to the new government by the controversy created by the appointment of Prime Minister Maitigue.

It said it would await the High Court of Justice to rule on the appeals lodged by members of the General National Congress (GNC).

The 17th ministerial session of the Non-Aligned Countries started Wednesday in the Algerian capital, devoted to issues of development, peace, terrorism, illegal immigration, transcontinental crime and the phenomenon of Islamophobia in some European countries.
