Haftar is ’unprepared for dialogue’: Bashagha

Interior Minister of the Government of the National Accord (GNA) Fathi Bashagha welcomed Wednesday dialogues with representatives of the Libyan eastern region to reach a solution for the crisis.

During a meeting with ambassadors accredited to Libya at the European Union’s headquarters in Tunisia, Bashagha said he rejects to hold a dialogue with General Commander of Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalifa Haftar, accusing him of being “unprepared for dialogue.”

However, the eastern region, which was largely Fred from armed groups by the LNA, is mostly loyal to Haftar, including the east-based House of Representatives and the Interim Government.

The meeting included the ambassadors of the European Union, Germany, Spain, Italy and France, and the deputy ambassador of the United Kingdom.

The ambassadors discussed the recent developments in the Libyan situation and the possible ways to end the war in the western region.

A wider international collaboration and a much more active and visible engagement of the European Union in the Libyan crisis is necessary, Italian Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi told the House and Senate foreign and defense commissions
in late May

“We cannot think that only one country, albeit close, can bring stabilization,” Milanesi said.
