The outgoing Government of National Unity (GNU) has revealed the details of Rome’s meeting between the Libyan military chiefs of staff and the Commander of the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), General Michael Langley.
Libya’s East and West chiefs of staff, Lieutenant General Abdul Razeq Al Nadhouri and Lieutenant General Muhammad Al Haddad, assured the AFRICOM Commander of moving forward to unify the Libyan military institution, forming a joint force as a first step to protect the borders, and adopting a national project to absorb young people and integrate them into state institutions.
The two parties also affirmed the unity of Libyan soil, the preservation of national sovereignty, and the sanctity of Libyan blood.
This came during the participation of Al-Haddad and Al-Nadouri, and their accompanying delegation, in the African Chiefs of Defense Conference in Rome hosted by AFRICOM Commander.
The conference discussed a number of issues aimed at achieving security and stability, as well as methods for protecting resources, preparing for crises and the mechanism for responding to them, as well as the prospects for using and benefiting from modern technology.
On the sidelines of the conference, Al-Nadhouri and Al-Haddad held separate bilateral meetings with the Italian Chief of Defense Staff, as well as with the Egyptian Armed Forces Chief of Staff.
Langley stressed standing with the Libyan people in their calls for peace, national unity and full sovereignty, to achieve a secure future characterized by economic prosperity and regional stability.
