The African Union’s Peace and Security Council will hold an extraordinary meeting on May 28 to discuss the situation in Libya and other issues.

The Cameroon-chaired Council will review various key issues, including governance and security challenges in Africa, terrorism, unconstitutional change of governments and humanitarian crises, the Libyan News Agency reported.

The Cameroon’s permanent representative at the AU said that the series of meetings will focus on reviewing and comparing the various efforts and challenges faced by the African countries, including Libya, the Central African Republic and Nigeria, in addition to the security challenges in the Horn of Africa and Chad.

In this context, Deputy Prime Minister of Libya’s new government Salim al-Zadma underscored a national will in ending the Libyan crisis.

In a letter addressing the country’s youth, social and political figures and sheikhs and dignitaries, Zadma underlined the importance of raising awareness of the dangers of foreign interventions in Libya.

He expressed appreciation for the “noble” international efforts aimed at achieving peace in Libya.

He called on Libyans to participate in creating stability and real development across the country.
