FM calls for a political solution to the Libyan crisis

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, discussed on Wednesday, with the Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, efforts made to reach a political solution to the Libyan crisis.

During the meeting, Safadi stressed the importance of intensifying efforts aimed at reaching a political solution to the Libyan crisis through an inter-Libyan dialogue that ends Libya's deteriorating situation, and protects its brotherly people, its unity and sovereignty.

Citing references to achieve peace in the northern African Arab country, Safadi affirmed the Kingdom's support for all political efforts and initiatives aimed at reaching a political solution to the crisis, including the Skhirat Agreement, the Berlin Conference, the Cairo Declaration, and all relevant Security Council resolutions.

The FM called for an immediate ceasefire and engagement in political negotiations to end the crisis and restore Libya's security and stability.

Moreover, the FM warned of the risks of "regionalizing" the crisis on Libya's security and its neighborhood, pointing to the importance of reviving the Arab role in the efforts to solve the crisis and preventing its deterioration and making Libya an arena for external interference.

The security of Arab countries is "interlinked," and Jordan will continue to work with all Arab countries to protect pan-Arab security and activate the Arab countries' role and in coordination with partners in the international community to serve Arab issues, according to Safadi.

For his part, Saleh praised the Kingdom's stances in support of Libya and its people, appreciating Jordan's efforts to help reach a political solution that would end the crisis, serve pan-Arab issues and interests, and achieve security and stability.

Saleh also briefed the FM on developments related to efforts to reach a cease-fire and activate the political pathway leading to the inter-Libyan agreement to end the crisis.
