Libya PM accepts Sudan plan for peace talks

Libya's internationally recognised prime minister Abdullah al-Thani (C-R) walks with Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir (C-L) upon the former's arrival at Khartoum international airport for a three-day visit on October 27, 2014Sudan said on Tuesday that Libya’s internationally recognised premier has accepted its proposal to bring together different groups in his strife-torn North African nation for talks on ending the conflict. Mounting unrest across Libya has virtually confined the internationally recognised government to the eastern city of Tobruk, and last month it accused Sudan of arming “terror” groups on its territory. Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thani “accepted the plan presented by President (Omar) al-Bashir to bring different Libyan groups together, and we have a clear plan,” said Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti. Speaking to reporters, Karti gave no further details of the plan, only saying it would be discussed with ministers at the next neighbouring countries of Libya meeting in the Sudanese capital.
