Cairo set to hold consultation meetings on Sudan, Libya under AU umbrella
Published in Ahram Online on 22 - 04 - 2019

Cairo is set to host consultation summits to discuss the ongoing Sudanese and Libyan crises under an African Union (AU) umbrella, Egyptian presidency spokesman Bassam Rady announced on Monday.
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who is also this year's chairman of the AU, is set to host a meeting attended by regional partners in Sudan with the participation of counterparts from Chad, Djibouti, Rwanda, Congo, Somalia, South Africa.
Also participating is the chief of the AU commission, the Ethiopian deputy prime minister, the South Sudanese advisor for security affairs, as well as officials from Uganda and Nigeria.
The summit aims to discuss the developing conditions in Sudan and boosting joint work and consultations over the best methods to deal with developments in the country and continuing to support stability and peace.
The Egyptian president is set also to host a meeting on Tuesday of the AU's troika summit and the chairmanship of the Libya committee in the African body to discuss the latest developments in Libya and the means to contain the current dilemma and revive the political process in Libya and eliminate terrorism.
The meetings come as both Libya and Sudan are continuing to witness political and security flare-ups.
In Libya, clashes have been erupting in Tripoli between Libya's internationally recognised government and Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) following an offensive by the army towards the southern part of the country.
Sudan has been witnessing a clash between the Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC) and protesters over the handover to civilian rule, only 10 days after the ousting of strongman ruler Omar Al-Bashir.
The talks between both the TMC and the opposition, including the main Sudanese Professionals' Association, have broken down as both exchanged threats.
