US Secretary of State in London for Libyan Talks

The UK Media is concentrating on Aid to the Caribbean following Irma’s wrath, but US Secretary Tillerson’s reason for joining Boris Johnson in London is the Political Summit focused on achieving peace in Libya.

The new UN Special Representative for Libya, Ghassan Salamé, will discuss what can be done to maintain recent momentum with the delegations from France, the United Arab Emirates, Italy and Egypt.  Qatar is the only member of the 2011 “Group of 4” not represented – a pointed omission.

See Chapter 6 of Belfast to Benghazi to read how they tried to influence Ministerial decisions in Tripoli and backed Abdul Hakim Bel-Haj.
