The United States embassy in Libya confirmed that they view the reopening of the coastal road as extremely relevant, coming at a time when the international community is preparing to meet at the Berlin II conference.

The US embassy indicated that both Libyans and foreign powers should clearly focus during this stage on encouraging stability and making sure that the coastal road remains open.

The embassy also encouraged Libyans to take control of their own internal affairs, particularly the holding of elections scheduled for next December.
