High Council of State (HCS) member Abdul-Rahman Al-Shater

Member of the High Council of State (HCS), Abdul-Rahman Al-Shater said Saturday that UN envoy Ghassan Salame’s call to resume dialogue between the HCS and HoR is just a hoax to help Haftar "save face" after his failure to achieve progress on the ground.

"Salame is racing against time to consolidate the military rule and did not have the courage to call things by their names," Al-Shater said.

He accused the UN envoy of causing confusion and undermining the understandings between the delegations of the two parties in their last meetings in Tunisia, saying that "he shut the door to dialogue after he sowed discord among them".
