Libya’s High Council of State suspends participation at UN-led Geneva talks

The Libyan High Council of State (HCS) has voted unanimously for suspending participation at the UN-led political talks to be held in Geneva on February 26.

The suspension decision came in a session for the HCS on Saturday, when 86 members were attending.

The decision links the resumption of participation to factors like seeing tangible progress in the 5+5 military commission talks in Geneva.

The HCS also tied the participation to getting the other parties’ commitment to the Libyan Political Agreement as a basis for any upcoming agreements.

“We also need clarification for the mechanism of decision making by the dialogue members and we need to know who the participants of the House of Representatives and those chosen by Ghassan Salame are.
