The Chairman of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki has proposed to the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj holding a National Reconciliation Conference.

The proposal came as Faki visited Al-Sarraj on Monday in Tripoli with a high-profile AU delegation.

The media office of Al-Sarraj said the meeting saw discussions about the latest developments on the political and security levels in Libya and the upcoming elections as well as the National Conference which will be organized by the UNSMIL in mid-April.

Al-Sarraj expressed his preliminary support for the proposal and hoped that it becomes under the auspices of the UNSMIL whose experience with the Libyan crisis should be put to use as it organized the National Conference, knowing that both the UN and AU are working on the same track regarding Libya.

Al-Sarraj also said that there's an opportunity now to find a solution for the Libyan crisis and all parties must look for the greater good of Libya and the Libyan people, saying he had been carrying out meetings to pave the way for solutions and that he criticizes those who are trying to hinder the accord among Libyans.

Faki announced the AU's proposal for a National Reconciliation Conference to be hosted in Addis Ababa next July last Friday in the Quartet meeting on Libya.
