South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, as Chair of the African Union, will participate in a virtual meeting of the African Union contact group of the high-level committee on Libya on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

The meeting is at the invitation of the President of the Republic of The Congo and Chairman of the AU High-Level Committee on Libya, Denis Sassou Nguesso.

The aim of the meeting is to take stock of progress made in relation to the resolutions of its inaugural meeting held in March 2020, in Oyo, The Republic of Congo.

The Oyo resolutions included an appeal to all stakeholders in the Libyan crisis to cease violations of the UNSC Resolution 2510 on an arms embargo, terror and implementation of the conclusions and commitments of the Berlin Conference.

The meeting will also assess progress in relation to the National Reconciliation Conference scheduled for July 2020 under the auspices of the African Union. 

Other Heads of State and Government who will participate in the AU Contact Group meeting include President of Algeria Abdelmadjid Tebboune; President of Chad Idriss Déby Itno and President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
