African Union Summit discusses bigger African role in resolving Libya’s conflict

On Sunday, the African Union’s Peace and Security 33rd Summit begins in Ethiopia’s Addis Ababa with Libya being top on the agenda.

The Algerian President Abdelmajid Tebboune and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi will attend the summit, while Tunisian President Kais Saied won’t be present due to health issues.

Libya will be discussed thoroughly at the summit that is chaired by Egypt and is starting under the slogan “Silencing Rifles to Pave the Way for Development in Africa.”

The summit is supposed to discuss fighting terrorism, institutional reform in the African Union, free trade in Africa and election of 10 members at the peace and security council.

The African Union has been lately working on engaging in the efforts to find a solution to the Libyan crisis and as Aharq Al-Awsat reported that the African Union won’t sit idly by and watch Libya without having an effective role in solution efforts.
