The Libyan Foreign Minister of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Mohammed Sayala has held a joint presser with the German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Tripoli, reiterating that Libya needs no new initiatives as the previous ones had been all useless.
Sayala expressed Monday GNA’s rejection to the European Union’s Operation IRINI as it aims to hinder GNA’s efforts to repel Khalifa Haftar’s aggression, ignoring the continuous flow of weapons and mercenaries to the “other party”.
He also remarked that a new UN envoy to Libya should be appointed because the acting envoy Stephanie Williams wishes to leave her position next October.
“We need to agree on a constitutional basis for elections that ensure democracy and fair use of oil resources.” Sayala added in his presser with German counterpart, Maas.
Sayala also indicated that the GNA is open for political negotiations with all Libyans in order to build a democratic and civilian state.
He reiterated the need for avoiding the oil sector and facilities any violence and conflicts and that it should be under the sole control and oversight of the National Oil Corporation.
Meanwhile, the German Foreign Minister said Military escalation in Libya poses massive threats as flow of weapons continues to the country, saying his country is ready to help Libya in mine and IEDs clearance efforts.
