On Monday, the Libyan National Unity Government praised the efforts of the Sultanate of Oman in resolving regional and international crises and issues and its support for achieving peace.
This came in the words of Foreign Minister Naglaa Al-Mangoush during her first visit to the Sultanate of Oman since assuming the position, during which she met the Minister of the Royal Office, Lieutenant General Sultan bin Muhammad Al-Nu’mani.
According to a statement by the Libyan Foreign Ministry, during the meeting, “talks were exchanged between al-Manqoush and al-Nu’mani on a number of areas of joint cooperation between the two countries.”
Al-Mangoush expressed her “pride and appreciation for the march of brotherly relations between Libya and the sisterly Sultanate of Oman,” praising “its efforts in resolving regional and international crises and issues and its support for achieving peace,” according to the Libyan statement.
During the visit, Al-Mangoush met, according to another statement of her ministry, on Monday, Omani Foreign Minister Badr Al-Busaidi, in the capital, Muscat.
The two sides discussed ways to strengthen bilateral ties and joint relations between the two countries, in addition to Arab and regional developments, and to enhance cooperation between the State of Libya and the Sultanate of Oman in various fields.
Earlier Monday, Al-Mangoush arrived in Oman from Doha, where she met the Qatari Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani.
The Libyan Foreign Minister is conducting an unannounced tour of a number of Arab cities, which she started on Saturday in Bahrain, prior to the Arab summit in Jeddah on May 19, with the aim of “mobilizing Arab support for holding elections and preserving the Arab consensus in support of Libya’s stability,” according to a previous statement by her ministry.
The United Nations is sponsoring a dialogue between the Libyans, with the aim of reaching elections in 2023 that will end a political crisis represented in a conflict between the government of Fathi Bashagha, which was assigned by the House of Representatives (east) early last year, and the national unity government headed by Abdul Hamid al-Dabaiba, who refuses to hand over power except to a government assigned by New elected parliament.
The Libyan minister’s tour also comes, according to the previous statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “to coordinate and support joint Arab efforts and positions towards the files and challenges witnessed by the Arab and regional environment, especially in Sudan.”
Since mid-April, states in Sudan, including Khartoum (center), have witnessed large-scale clashes between the army led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, “Hamidti”, which left hundreds dead, thousands wounded, and difficult humanitarian conditions.
