Libya between the tides... Diplomacy of the failed and not the ablest

Libya between the tides... Diplomacy of the failed and not the ablest

As long as the government of national reconciliation is unable to control things in the country and did not achieve social peace in Libya

The use of Libyan diplomacy with the countries of the world has exceeded the degree of failure with international benefits.

International Organizations, Arab, African and European organizations demand a package of demands, including bridging the deficit gap that surrounds the Libyan state from serious domestic crises destabilizing the Libyan state.

The Government of National Reconciliation is not moving towards the political progress desired by the countries of the world to dismantle the internal tendencies and the achievement of a single unified government that works on the actual work of achieving stability and security for the good performance of the political consensus between the Libyan political poles, competing for power in the country.

The strained relations between the East and the West exist, are still dominated by a lot of mutual incompatibility in the political proposition between them and consensus in many political issues of interest between the three Libyan provinces, linking the Libyan state tighter together, in fate and future stability of the country.

Especially with the intensification of the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar stationed on the Libyan city of Derna against the forces of the militia hostile to him and strongly bombarded stronghold of terrorism in the east of the country, which refuses to enter into a truce with the Libyan armed forces.

Khalifa Hafer did not fail through his siege for four years, but the siege of Derna does not work any more than the other side, which was still at the top of the confrontation with the forces of Field Marshal Hafer.

The Arab Republic of Egypt, is the first Arab state to support the blockade of the city of Derna, by land and sea, Marshal Khalifah Hafter had no any other option of but heading towards the Libyan capital Tripoli.

The efforts of some Arab countries, especially the Gulf, were not focused on stability and in line with their sincerity to stronger strategic partners of other Arab countries at the economic, military, security and intelligence to Libya.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have recently suffered a kind of political apathy towards the Libyan issue and have seen many internal flaws among member states, especially with the State of Qatar, which has not respected the sovereignty of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

Stances from the conflict between Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, is a sign of the failure of positive neutrality, despite the distance linking Libya to the State of Qatar, which qualifies by infusing its nose in the internal affairs of Libyan policy.

Unprecedented moves by the Libyan political patties on the weak political scene, organized by the Qatari and Turkish intelligence in a conference in the Senegalese capital of Dakar, the meetings involving the conflicting Libyan parties, the Islamic political trend and some symbols of the former regime.

The meeting was supported by the State of Qatar and Turkey in the presence of Saleh al-Makhzoum and Ali Dibibah and leader of the Combatant Group Abdul Hakim Balhaj, with Abdullah Othman Gaddafi, resident of the Egyptian capital Cairo and Hassan al-Mabruk and Zintani supporters of the former Libyan regime.

The next meeting of Dakar aims to thwart the plan of the UN envoy Ghassan Salameh to Libya, which enjoys international and regional support to establish security and stability in the Libyan state, stressing the elimination of the Skhirat agreement and the introduction of Libya into a further quagmire of chaos.

Libya's partnership with African nations is to extends from North Africa to its south and east and west in the framework of non-interference in the internal affairs, and help Libya in its war on African terrorism coming to in everywhere.

Africans are taking positions and respect the principle of Libyan national sovereignty and not be dragged into everything that leads to fuel the conflict among African countries As Libya had in the past.

Libya had to work to build social peace and economic prosperity within the framework of the rule of law by adopting the Libyan constitutional draft, which to place its citizens equally and not discriminate between them because of origin, gender, color and social status.

The direction of the internal reconciliation between the Libyan political poles is the right way to unify the Libyan sovereign institutions, and to record the history of Libyan involvement by the Libyan national forces in dealing with any foreign attempt to undermine the unity of Libyan soil.
