The Speaker of Libya's House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, said that his meeting with the Commander-in-Chief of the Army, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, under Egyptian sponsorship, “was to support the political solution and unify Libya's institutions,” considering that “he and Haftar are on one path to solve the Libyan crisis.”
On Wednesday, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met at the Federal Palace in the Egyptian capital Cairo, with Haftar and Saleh to discuss Libyan efforts to advance the peace process under the auspices of the United Nations, according to what was announced by the spokesman for the Egyptian Presidency.
Saleh added, in an interview with Al-Arabiya, that "once the authority is established, the Libyan armed forces and the mercenaries will be expelled." He believed that "the Cairo declaration is the closest to the solution of the Libyan crisis."
He pointed out that "each Libyan region will name its representative in the Presidential Council," and said that "it is not permissible for the head of the Presidential Council to be from one region."
The Speaker demanded that there be a special account for the oil money until a new authority is in place, stressing that "the oil money not be allowed to reach the armed militias."
