Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti flew to the Libyan cities of Tobruk and Tripoli in a bid to mediate between rival governments based at opposite ends of the country, the Sudanese Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
Karti first went to the eastern city of Tobruk to meet the internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni before flying to Tripoli for talks with a competing government based there, Foreign Ministry spokesman Joseph al-Kordofani said.
Thinni had previously made numerous accusations that Sudan, as well as Qatar, have been arming the militants that have been fighting for control of the oil-producing country, which has fallen into chaos since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
However, Sudan has not denied maintaining contacts with members of the Tripoli-based group, even as most countries have avoided public meetings with Hassi or senior officials in his government, though Turkey sent an envoy to meet him last month.Last Mod: 10 Kasım 2014, 22:35
