UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
The Libyan government has requested that Tunisia and Qatar be invited to the international conference on resolving the Libyan crisis on Sunday in Berlin.
The Foreign Ministry of Libya’s National Reconciliation Government (GNA), which enjoys the recognition of the United Nations (UN), has sent a message to the German Embassy in Tripoli.
The message says that the two countries’ participation is important as Tunisia was one of the most important supporters of the revolution that led to the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, while Qatar still continues its support for the country.
The GNA Foreign Ministry has stressed that the two countries’ participation in the Berlin Conference will contribute to achieving security and stability in Libya during peace talks.
A conference will be held in the German capital on Sunday, January 19, as part of the Berlin Process for Resolving the Crisis in Libya.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has invited heads of state and government to attend the meeting.
Representatives from Turkey, the US, Russia, Britain, France, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Republic of Congo, Italy, Egypt, Algeria as well as the UN, the European Union and the African Union will attend the conference.
Meanwhile, it was announced that Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the GNA, as well as the leader of the illegitimate armed forces in eastern Libya, Khalifa Haftar, were also invited to the conference.
Previously, 5 working meetings were held in the framework of the Berlin Process on the Libyan issue.
Since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, two rival governments have emerged in Libya, one in eastern Libya largely supported by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates and the other a Tripoli-based GNA that enjoys UN and international recognition.
In April, Haftar launched an offensive to occupy Tripoli, a move that was opposed by the international community.
