FM Dendias Speaks with Libyan Parliament President on Need for Peaceful Solution to the Crisis

ATHENS – Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias spoke on the phone with Libyan parliament president Aguila Saleh Eissa on Thursday evening.

The talks focused on the situation in Libya and the need for a peaceful solution to the crisis, according to a foreign ministry post on Twitter.

  According to diplomatic sources, the discussion focused on recent developments in this context, and the prospects for creating the conditions that might lead to a peaceful, political solution under the auspices of the UN. To this end, emphasis was placed on the importance of appointing a new Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General as soon as possible.

  The foreign minister and Aguila Saleh Eissa reiterated their support for the Berlin Conclusions, stressing the need to implement the arms embargo and ceasefire. In addition, they also underlined the non-existent and destabilising nature of the Turkish-Libyan memorandum, which is invalid and outside the framework of international law, the same sources noted.

  The Libyan parliament president analyzed the eight-point plan he proposed, which would include, among other things, the establishment of a new presidential council to represent the three provinces of Libya, as well as the appointment of a committee of experts and intellectuals for the country's new Constitution, the same sources added. The plan was unveiled in late April and has gained the support of the international community.
