US warns against reevaluating ties Libyan sides
The United States on Thursday warned to reevaluate its relationships with Libyan actors and institutions that “delay and obstruct progress toward political solutions.”
The statement was made by Richard Norland, the US special envoy to Libya, after concluding a visit to Tripoli where he met with Libyan actors, international partners, and the donor community, including representatives from the Government of National Unity, UN Support Mission in Libya, and World Bank.
During his meetings, Norland stressed the urgency of “concrete steps to establish a constitutional basis for credible, transparent elections in keeping with the aspirations of the Libyan people.”
“The United States chose Libya as a key country in its Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability and is committed to partner with Libyans in support of a more stable and prosperous future, led by an elected, unified government,” the US envoy added.
On the issue of conflict between the unity government of Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh and the parliament-appointed government of Fathi Bashagha, Norland said talks and reaching an agreement are possible between them.
