Mercenaries withdrawal from Libya tops AU summit agenda

The 35th summit of African heads of state in Addis Ababa, held Saturday, discusses a number of urgent issues, including the mechanism of foreign mercenaries withdrawal from Libya and the interest in advancing the electoral process, which were supposed to be held on December 24, 2021.

The President of the Presidential Council, Mohamed al-Menfi, is participating in the work of the African Union Summit, which was titled “Silencing Guns in the Continent.”

The 35th African Union Summit is being held this time in person, after two virtual sessions in the past two years due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Libyan crisis tops the agenda of the summit, in addition to the file of unprecedented military coups in several countries, and the crises of Sudan, Somalia, Chad and Mali. These countries are preparing for electoral processes.

On the other hand, the summit agenda includes a discussion about the unconstitutional changes that the military are behind in Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Sudan and Guinea.
