Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman announced that his country is ready to play a role in supporting a Libyan national project which represents the people and fulfils their wishes.

This came after a meeting between Bin Salman and the President of the Presidential Council of the Government of the Libyan Accord, Fayez Al-Sarraj, on Monday in the Saudi coastal city of Jeddah, according to a statement issued on Tuesday by Al-Sarraj’s information office.

During their meeting, the two officials discussed the latest developments in Libya and the possibility of further establishing bilateral relations between the two countries. “Stability in Libya will have a positive impact on its neighbours and the entire region. It will also encourage the opening of new horizons for joint cooperation,” said Bin Salman.

Al-Sarraj said “his ultimate goal is to establish a democratic, civilian state of Libya,” according to the statement.

He pointed out that “to be realised, this goal requires regional and international support”.
