The United Nations Secretary-General has welcomed an agreement between Fayez Al-Sirraj and Khalifa Haftar to hold elections in Libya and end the transitional phase.

The agreement came in a meeting Wednesday in the United Arab Emirates’ capital between Fayez Al-Sirraj, head of Libya’s U.N.-recognized government in Tripoli in the west, and Khalifa Hifter, the commander of Libya’s self-styled army in the east.

In a statement late Friday, Antonio Guterres commended both parties’ “agreement on the need to end the transitional stages in Libya through the holding of general elections.”
