Spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, said that the head of the UN mission in Libya, Abdulaye Bathily, is continuing his efforts geared towards unity of institutions and leadership for the sake of the Libyan people.

This came in a press briefing on Friday in response to a question about the Secretary-General’s reaction to the declaration of war by Khalifa Haftar.

Bathily, during his meeting with the Speaker of the Arab Parliament, Adel Al-Asumi, described his mission in Libya as heavy, but it is not insurmountable, and his work is mainly based on what the Libyans want without foreign interference, as he put it.
