Libya-Egyptian initiative to be reactivated

Tripoli- Libya (PANA) -- The latest developments in Sudan, the reactivation of the Libya-Egyptian initiative to settle the armed conflict there, and how to reconcile Sudan's warring parties were high on the agenda of a ministerial meeting Tuesday in Tripoli.
The meeting brought together the Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Amr Moussa, the Secretary of the Libyan People's General Committee for African Unity, Dr Ali Triki, the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ahmed Maher, Sudan's Foreign Minister, Moustapha Ousman Ismaïl, as well as several experts of the Arab and Sudanese issues in the three countries and within the Arab League.
Participants pledged to continue consultations with all the parties involved in order to find common ground to hold the national reconciliation conference as soon as possible, said Libyan diplomatic sources.
Ismail praised the efforts made by Libya and Egypt to help settle the conflict in Sudan, and reasserted his government's willingness to arrange for the organisation of such a national conference.
The Libya-Egyptian initiative is based on holding direct talks with all the protagonists before holding a national conference to decide on the future of a united Sudan for the benefit of all the Sudanese people.
Meanwhile, Moussa, Maher and Ismail are also attending a meeting of a special committee set up by an Arab League summit in Amman to look into a proposal made by Col.
Moammar Kadhafi at the summit to find a solution to the Palestinian problem.
