The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BEIRUT – Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said that he told his Libyan counterpart, Mohamed Siala, that Lebanese-Libyan relations will not be resolved until the disappearance of Imam Musa al-Sadr and his two companions has been clarified.
Bassil and Siala met in Brussels on the sidelines of the inaugural EU-Arab League summit, the state-run National News Agency reported. The two agreed to follow up on efforts by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord to investigate Sadr’s disappearance.
Al-Sadr, who founded the Amal Movement, disappeared in Libya along with two of his companions during an official visit in 1978, when the country was under the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi.
