"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," said the Presidency on Tuesday.

The President will partake in the meeting as Chair of the AU.

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

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.

The Contact Group was established to promote the coordination of international efforts in pursuit of a lasting solution to the Libyan crisis.
