Serraj and Haftar Meet in UAE
Al-Jazeera reports that Fayez al-Serraj, PM of the Government of the National Accord (GNA) and Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar met in Abu Dhabi today. The two rivals were meant to meet in Cairo in February, but Haftar refused to attend. They haven’t met in person since the GNA established itself in Tripoli in early 2016.
The two men held face-to-face talks in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday “thanks to international and Arab mediation”, the LANA news agency said.
There was no official statement after the meeting, the second since Sarraj was named prime minister-designate after a UN-backed deal in late 2015.
But sources close to Haftar, head of the self-styled Libyan National Army, described the two-hour meeting as positive, according to a Reuters news agency report.
