Libyan warlord, Khalifa Haftar, has met with the French President’s special envoy to Libya, Paul Soler, and the French ambassador to Libya, Beatrice de Helen.
The Information Office of the so-called General Command of Haftar’s forces indicated that the meeting was held in the latter’s office in the city of Benghazi, without revealing any further details.
The French special envoy to Libya had met with a number of Libyan officials during his recent visit to Tripoli, including the head of the Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi, the head of the High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, and the chairman of the High National Elections Commission, Imad Al-Sayeh.
Ten years after the US ambassador to Libya was killed in the eastern city of Benghazi, the country remains in turmoil.
Islamist militants armed with automatic weapons and grenades stormed the US compound on the evening of September 11, 2012, at a time when the oil-rich North African country was torn by civil war.
