CAIRO/KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti flew into the Libyan capital on Monday for talks with the leader of a Tripoli-based government, witnesses said.
Karti met in a hotel with Omar al-Hassi, prime minister of a government which has not been recognized by the United Nations or most major foreign governments.
Tripoli is under control of a rival government and parliament which has forced the internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni to work from a town in the east.
Turkey sent an envoy to meet Hassi last month but most countries have avoided public meetings with him or senior officials in his government.
