Empires bomb who they want, when they want, for whatever reason. It seems irrelevant on whom the U.S. wages war; what matters it that it be at war, always and forever.

Diplomatic efforts in Libya are struggling to bring the country’s warring parties to the negotiating table

Diplomatic efforts in Libya are struggling to bring the country’s warring parties to the negotiating table | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Algiers has postponed the Libyan dialogue it planned to host from 15 to 16 September, rescheduling it for one week later, on 23 and 24 September. The delay comes as Bernadino Leon, UN envoy to Libya and head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), continues to meet with warring factions in western Libya.

Libyan sources told Al-Ahram Weekly that Algerian officials asked for a further week to give intermediaries more time to convince rival factions in Libya to come to the talks in Algiers. Some of the factions have expressed reservations over the presence of certain individuals at the planned talks.

 

(...)

 

Belhajj described Algeria as “the country that was best poised to undertake a leading role in the region to solve the Libyan crisis that has swept the country, especially as it is the country that has been working to prevent military intervention and has taken a clear stance against NATO in this regard.”
On the question of the Libyan parties that support or oppose the talks in Algeria, Belhajj was quoted by Al-Fajr as saying that the “Tobruk group” was reserved in its response to the Algerian initiative. The Libyan areas that border Egypt favour Egyptian initiatives, while areas that border Algeria and Tunisia support Algerian efforts, he said.
