The Presidential Council's member Abdelsalam Kajman has met with the Deputy Head for political affairs of the UNSMIL Stephanie Williams and urged to separate any upcoming political agreement from the stability and security of the Libyan people, calling for having all parties participate in this line of policy.

Kajman said in the Tuesday meeting that the Presidential Council supports the UNSMIL's efforts to find a political solution to the crisis.

Williams told Kajman of the details leading to the UAE meeting between Fayez Al-Sirraj and Khalifa Haftar, saying it had paved the way for the upcoming Libyan National Conference.

The two also discussed the current state of affairs in the south and the repercussions of the latest military escalation.

Many Libyan observers say the latest meetings of Ghassan Salame and Williams aim to sell what was agreed on in the UAE.

They also fear that that the meeting was a way to share power which could trigger a civil war as many western armed groups reject Haftar.

The member of the High Council of State Abdelrahman Al-Shater said he was by the meeting with EU ambassadors on Tuesday, saying on Twitter that they had rejected to reveal any of the UAE meeting's details and that their message was "you must agree on the UAE meeting's outcome."

"I call on Al-Sirraj to tell the Libyan people what happened in the UAE meeting." He added.
