The Libyan Address Journal

The Cairo Peace Declaration is the most appropriate solution to the Libyan crisis, as it culminated in local and international consultations, President of the Libyan House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, affirmed. Saleh said that the Tripoli-based State Council is benefiting from the status quo and its interest is in continuing the crisis.

“The resumption of oil production is directly linked to the ceasefire,” Saleh added in press statements, stressing, “There is no oil with the guns.” He pointed out that the Turkish intervention “contributed to complicating the scene in Libya.”

He indicated that rejecting the Egyptian initiative “will lead to the continuation of the military battles, which will force the Libyan National Army to respond to any threats.”

The HoR President suggested that each of Libya’s regions; Cyrenaica, Tripolitania, and Fezzan, choose their representatives in the new political body, stressing that “there is no disagreement with the leadership of the army and we all strive for the same goal even if opinions differ on that.”
