Will failure of Al-Mashri and Saleh’s meeting in Cairo complicate Libya’s political situation?

Al-Arabiya reported the failure of a meeting between the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aqila Saleh and the Head of High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mashri, after the latter objected to the meeting’s schedule, noting that the issue of empowering the Libyan government headed by Fathi Bashagha was the reason for the failure of the meeting, as Al-Mashri insisted that the focus of the meeting be the constitutional track.

Al-Arabiya stated that despite the mediation of the UN advisor, Stephanie Williams, the meeting failed, pointing out that it is working to bridge the gap between Saleh and Al-Mashri.

The Joint Military Commission, which is also holding meetings in Cairo, in the presence of the Chief of Staff of the National Army, Abdel Razek Al-Nadori, and the Chief of the General Staff of the Unity Government, Mohammed Al-Haddad, agreed to set up a mechanism for dismantling and disarming armed groups, in addition to agreeing on another mechanism to remove mercenaries and foreign forces from Libya.

The Joint Military Commission demanded the reopening of the oil facilities after the recent wave of closures due to the dispute between the Libyan government and the unity government over power and oil revenues.
