Leaders meeting in London stress urgent need to break impasse between Libya’s UN-backed PM and its central bank governor
Western leaders meeting in London have urged key political and economic figures in Libya to come together amid signs that infighting over the conduct of the central bank and the control of oil supplies is driving the country to the brink of economic chaos and authoritarian rule.
The meeting was called at the insistence of the US and followed a public row between Libya’s UN-backed prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj, and its central bank governor, Saddek al-Kabir. Both Sarraj and Kabir were at the meeting, also attended by the US secretary of state, John Kerry, and the UK foreign secretary, Boris Johnson.
