UN delegate arrived in Misurata on an unannounced visit
UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salama arrived in Libya’s northwestern city of Misurata on Tuesday on an unannounced visit.
Without giving further details, the UN’s mission in Libya tweeted that Salama had “arrived at Misurata airport to meet with political and community leaders”.
Last week, the UN envoy visited the city of Tobruk, where he met with Aqila Salih, speaker of Libya’s Tobruk-based parliament.
Salama also paid a visit to Libyan capital Tripoli, where he met with Abdul Rahman al-Suwaheli, head of the UN-backed unity government’s presidential council.
Salama is the UN’s sixth special envoy to Libya. He was appointed to the position earlier this month, replacing Martin Kobler, who had filled the post from October 2015 until late July 2017.
