The Sudanese foreign ministry said in a statement issued on Saturday that Khartoum is joining the meeting out of its its keenness on the security and stability of Libya.

The statement renewed the call for all the neighbouring countries of Libya, the Arab League, the African Union, the United Nations, and international community to contribute positively in supporting security and stability and promote the process of peaceful transition.

The ministry said that Sudan believes that Libya’s neighbouring countries are concerned more than any other side on maintaining the stability of Libya and ensuring its security and are best able to provide help and assistance needed to support the government and people of Libya.

Last month, the retired Libyan general Khalifa Heftar who is leading the military campaign dubbed as “Operation Dignity” against Islamist militias accused Sudan directly of providing aid to these groups.

“We have information confirming the undertaking by Sudan of providing aid to these groups. We refuse to see such behavior from Arab brotherly states and we hope that this information is incorrect,” Heftar told Saudi-owned al-Hadath TV.

“Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Chad, Mali and Niger and all neighboring countries support us through border control, yet we do not need any military aid from these countries,” he added.
