The US ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, said Thursday that the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdel Hamid Dbeibah, and the Prime Minister-designate from the House of Representatives (HoR), Fathi Bashagha, are ready to enter negotiations to find a political solution to the crisis in the country.

"In communication with the GNU Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dbeibah, I appreciated his commitment to protect lives as well as his readiness to engage in negotiations to find a political solution”, Norland said.

As part of ongoing consultations with all sides, Norland spoke with HoR-designated PM Fathi Bashagha and commended him on his willingness to deescalate tensions and seek to resolve the current political disagreement through negotiations, not force, the US Embassy tweeted.
