The head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Abdoulaye Bathily, met with Khalifa Haftar to review Libya's political, security, and economic situation and explore ways to advance the political process.

On his X account on Wednesday, Bathily said they agreed to coordinate all initiatives towards enabling elections and work towards a political settlement among major actors.

The UNSMIL head also met with the PM appointed by the Tobruk-based Parliament, Osama Hammad, and discussed facilitating access for humanitarian actors to benefit the population.

"I reiterated my call for all Libyan leaders to rise to their responsibility and unite for the benefit of their motherland, including in managing the reconstruction of Derna and other flood-affected areas."
