The preparatory committee for holding the Inclusive Forum for the Libyan-African Relations convened its first meeting on Sunday, at the HoR HQ in Tripoli.

The meeting was convened upon recommendations made by the Foreign Ministry and Foreign Affairs Committee in the House of Representatives.

The session discussed preparations for holding the forum scheduled to take place early next month, according to the media office of the HoR.

The forum aims to highlight the importance of Libyan-African relations and the role of the African Union in resolving the ongoing conflict in Libya.

The meeting included Chairman of the preparation committee Ali Abu Zakuk, Chairman of the HoR Foreign Affairs Committee, Abu Bakr Saeed, a delegation from the Foreign Ministry, and several MPs.

The Director of the African Administration and his deputy have also participated in the meeting, as well as a representative from the Center for African Studies, according to the HoR media office.

It is worth noting that the African Union had expressed condemnation for being "systematically marginalized" in the process led by the United Nations and demanded a more prominent role in settling the Libyan conflict.
