Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, met with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London. The parties discussed the steps taken by the Unity Government to restore stability and peace in Libya and the December 24 elections.
Emphasis was placed on a transparent and fair election, the unification of the army, among other issues. Johnson expressed his support for Dbeibeh’s efforts to bring stability and democracy in Libya.
Prime Minister Johnson also expressed his welcome for the Libyan National Oil Company’s decision to open its head office in London. Johnson invited Libya to the climate summit to be held in Scotland in November while introducing the Paris Agreement to Libyan PM.
In a press release from the Libyan Prime Ministry Media Office, it was stated that Prime Minister Dbeibeh met with British officials to discuss political and security issues. It was noted that Prime Minister Dbeibeh arrived in the UK after the 2nd Berlin Conference on 23 June.
The UK, which participated in the air operations that started under the leadership of France in March 2011, during Prime Minister David Cameron’s term in office, was one of the active countries in the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. However, according to many people, it is claimed that the UK avoided taking responsibility for the Libyan crisis in the following period.
Libya recently announced that it would ratify the Paris Agreement to curb environmental effects to the war-torn country.
