Tripoli, 16 September 2014:
Nuri Abu Sahmain together with Ali Salabi, viewed by many as the ideological brains and real head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, . . .[restrict]and Nizar Kawan, a member of the rump General National Congress as well as of the Brotherhood and its political wing, the Justice and Construction Party, have been holding talks in N’Djamena with Chadian President Idriss Déby.
The visit is seen as an attempt by the Congress and its Libya Dawn allies to gather international and regional support ahead of tomorrow’s conference in Madrid on Libya.
At the beginning of month, Abu Sahmain was in Khartoum looking for Sudanese support.
Both countries will attend the conference.
Libya and Chad have a long and often bitter history of involvement in each other’s affairs. However, in the Libya neighbours’ conference which took place last month in Cairo, Chad (and Sudan) agreed that the House of Representatives, not the former Congress, was Libya’s sole legitimate legislature and that Libya’s militias should be disarmed.
