This second meeting provided an opportunity to review the situation in Libya since the first meeting of the Committee, which was also held in Nouakchott on 19 March 2011. The Committee took stock of the activities undertaken in the discharge of its mandate and the promotion of the AU roadmap for the resolution of the Libyan crisis, in particular the ltative meeting on Libya, held in Addis Ababa, on 25 March 2011, with the participation of AU Member States and partners; the technical consultation on the modalities for an early ceasefire and the establishment of an operational monitoring mechanism, convened at the initiative of the AU, in Addis Ababa, on 31 March 2011, with the participation of the United Nations, the League of Arab States, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the European Union (EU); as well as the contacts initiated with the Libyan parties. The Chairperson of the Commission seized the opportunity of the meeting to brief the other members of the HighLevel ad hoc Committee on the discussions he had in London, notably with the United Kingdom Foreign Secretary; in Brussels with the relevant EU and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) officials; and in Rome, with the Italian Minister Foreign Affairs. Furthermore, the ad hoc Committee had an exchange of views on the international initiatives relating to the crisis in Libya.

On the eve of its visit to Libya, on 10 and 11 April 2011, in order to meet with the Libyan parties, both in Tripoli and Benghazi, the ad hoc Committee made an urgent appeal to the said parties to resolutely commit themselves to a peaceful settlement of the grave crisis facing their country and, to this end, to extend to it the required cooperation.

The Committee reiterated its determination to spare no efforts in fully discharging its

mandate and assisting the parties to achieve an early solution to the crisis, based on the AU roadmap as articulated by the PSC, namely: (i) the immediate cessation of all hostilities; (ii) the cooperation of the concerned Libyan authorities to facilitate the diligent delivery of humanitarian assistance to the needy populations; (iii) the protection of foreign nationals, including African migrant workers living in Libya; and (iv) dialogue between the Libyan parties and an inclusive transitional period, with the view to adopting and implementing the political reforms necessary for the elimination of the causes of the current crisis, with due consideration for the legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people for democracy, political reform, justice, peace and security, as well as socioeconomic development.
