Participating in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) session on Libya, Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU) Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh evaluated the latest developments in Libya with Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the Secretary-General of the Arab League. In the statement made by the Arab League’s Press Office, it was stated that the two diplomats discussed the current relations between Libya and the Arab League.
Aboul Gheit stated that, as the Arab League, they welcomed the GNU and the Presidential Council, which took office in March, and supported its efforts made to hold the general elections scheduled for December 24. Prime Minister Dbeibeh emphasized the need of his country for its Arab brothers and conveyed his thanks to Secretary-General Gheit, who attended the UNSC meetings on Libya. Prime Minister Dbeibeh also stated that the Arab League has made positive contributions to the political process in Libya.
The Arab League, or in other words the Arab Union, of which 22 countries are members, aims to protect the economic, cultural, political and social relations between its member countries since its establishment in 1944. The Arab League, which has held meetings on the issues on the agenda from time to time, has not been able to show a comprehensive and permanent will for the solution of the Libyan crisis since 2011.
