The 8th meeting of the African Union High-Level Commitee on Libya opened in Brazzaville on Thursday. The summit is expected to update the organisation's outlook on how to solve the crisis.
«The continuing violation of the arms embargo approved by the United Nations Security Council, the continued flow of mercenaries and terrorists to the country, makes this situation of destabilization worse... Еще, while the multiplication of external interference does not help to solve the crisis,» said the African Union Commission chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat.
The meeting in Brazzaville is taking place just days ahead of the conference of African Union leaders in Addis Ababa.
«Our sense of responsibility invites us to action in order to integrate recent developments in this crisis into our approach. Our duty for Africa still challenges us today to raise and engrave the Libyan question to the level of absolute priority in the peace and security agendas of the African Union and the United Nations,” said the Republic of Congo president Denis Sassou Nguesso, who chairs the AU's High-Level Committee on Libya.
