Libyan Presidency Council head Fayez Serraj and Libyan National Army (LNA) leader Khalifa Hafter will attend the latest African Union (AU) mini-summit on the Libyan crisis, which takes place in the Congolese capital Brazzaville on Friday.

According to the Libyan news agency LANA, House of Representatives (HoR) president Ageela Saleh, State Council President Abdulrahman Sewehli and the head of the HoR dialogue committee, Abdulsalam Nassiyah will also attend. 

The mini-summit is being organised by the African Union High Level Committee on Libya, headed by Congolese President Denis Sassou Nguesso.

The committee comprises Niger, Mauritania, South Africa and Ethiopia.

Neighbouring states, including Chad, Sudan, Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria have also been invited to the Summit.

It follows the AU summit in held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, two months ago at which it was decided that AU efforts on Libya needed to be stepped up and the Libyan national dialogue supported, the Libya Herald reported.

Friday’s summit in Brazzaville is the third mini-summit organised by the committee.

At the last one in Brazzaville in January, agreement was reached that changes needed to be made to the Libyan Political Agreement to make it acceptable to all sides – and that time was of the essence.
