The German Ambassador to Libya, Michael Ohnmacht, says that effective rule of law is crucial for Libya's peace process.

Ohnmacht's remarks came in a Twitter post on Wednesday following a meeting with Libya's Minister of Justice Halima Abdel Rahman the day before.

"Strengthening the rule of law is a crucial factor for sustainable peace and stability. In this regard, I discussed with the Minister of Justice, Mrs. Halima Abdel-Rahman, the possibilities for legal cooperation and training between Libya and Germany."

During the past month, the German ambassador, whose country hosted a summit to try to put Libya's peace process back on track, engaged in intensive meetings with various Libyan actors, including Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, the Vice President of the Presidential Council, Musa al-Koni, the head of the High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, and the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Fawzi al-Nuwairi.
