The Address | Benghazi – Libya
A source told The Libyan Address Journal that Ghassan Salame, the Secretary-General’s envoy to Libya, will arrive at al-Rajma in Benghazi within 48 hours to meet with Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA).
The source, who asked not to be named, said the upcoming meeting between Salame and Marshal Haftar aims to complete the terms of the Abu Dhabi meeting, which brought together Marshal Haftar and Fayez Al-Sarraj, president of the Presidential Council. The two parties agreed on February 27 to go to parliamentary and presidential elections by the end of the year as well as ending of the transitional period.
The source confirmed that the Salame-Marshal Haftar meeting comes in “a general atmosphere of optimism” in reaching a political solution to the Libyan crisis that ensures the participation of all parties in the administration of the state.
