Libya’s Presidential Council hails Arab League’s pro-legitimacy stance

The deputy head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Ahmed Maiteeg, has welcomed the Arab League’s stance that backed legitimacy in Libya, hailing the bloc’s support for the implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement that was signed in Skhirat in December 2015 as the only basis for any solutions in the country.

These remarks came in a meeting for Maiteeg with the Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala to discuss the Arab League emergency session that was held on Tuesday in Cairo.

Meanwhile, Sayala reiterated that the Libyan Foreign Ministry was in constant contact with the foreign ministers of Arab Maghreb and Arab states to warn them against dealing with illegitimate entities in Libya – entities that are not part of the Skhirat agreement – he said.

The Arab League convened an emergency session behind closed doors and off the cameras, reiterating rejection of any form of foreign intervention in Libya and saying that the Libyan Political Agreement is the only basis for settling the crisis – saying no to military solutions.

In the wake of this meeting, the Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala hailed the stances of Sudan, Qatar and the Arab Maghreb states that supported Libya at the Arab League.

Meanwhile, the Arab League couldn’t approve the call of the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqiula Saleh for withdrawing legitimacy and recognition from the GNA, according to his statement to Saudi Arabia’s Al-Arabiya TV Channel, let alone the inaction by the Secretary General of the UN and the President of the African Union toward his letters in this regard.
