Egypt, UAE call for political settlement in Libya

Egypt, UAE call for political settlement in Libya: Egypt and the UAE have renewed their calls for a political settlement in Libya, a day after forces loyal to Libya’s UN-recognized government seized a key strategic base previously controlled by Egypt- and UAE-backed General Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA). Speaking to African leaders, the president called for reconciliation between the rival factions following the major setback for Haftar’s advance on Tripoli. Emirati officials echoed the call, saying that the only course of action for the war-torn North African country is “an immediate, comprehensive ceasefire and a return to the political process,” Reuters reported.
