Rival Libyan Leaders shake hands in Palermo
Rival Libyan Leaders, Fayez al Serraj, who is recognised internationally of having limited control of the west of Libya, and General Khalifa Haftar whose forces control the east of Libya, met in Palermo during the conference discussing Libya’s future and shook hands in the presence of Italian Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte.
The meeting between the two protagonists that lasted for only a few minutes is being looked upon as an important development in the termination of violence between the two rival factions although a return to peace still appears to be far off as the elections that were scheduled to go ahead on 10th December have been postponed.
An Italian diplomat told TVM that General Haftar said to his rival Al Serraj there was no need for a change of horse while crossing the river which the diplomat interpreted to mean there was no need for him to step down from his position until the election is held.
Yesterday General Haftar did not attend discussions between representatives from 38 countries, including Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and as yet it is not known whether he will attend the final session scheduled to end early this afternoon.
