The party says some countries are the problem and not the solution

Justice and Construction Party, one of Libyan Political Agreement signatories, has rejected the outcome of between the head of UN-installed Presidential Council Fayaz Al-Sirraj and chief of Dignity Operation Khalifa Haftar.

In a statement shortly after the meeting, which was brokered by French President Emmanuel Macro, the party said any amendments to the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat, Morocco, must be done according to terms of the agreement and under the umbrella of the United Nations.

“Holding meetings under the auspices of individual states is a deviation from the political track of the political agreement and a mix-up of it. Such meetings open the way for the agendas of those states to favor one side over the other and to deepen the division and crisis”, read the statement, adding that “some countries are the problem and not the solution”.

The party indicated that the Presidential Council, House of Representatives and the High Council of State derive their legitimacy from the Libyan Political Agreement and they can only act in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
