The Head of the High Council of State (HCS) Khalid Al-Mishri has informed the members of the results of his visit to Turkey where he met with the Turkish Foreign and Defense Ministers as well as the Chief of Intelligence.

The HCS said in a statement on Facebook that Turkish officials had told Al-Mishri of their vision for a solution in Libya that is based only on dialogue not force, in addition to urging for holding elections as soon as possible.

The HCS discussed in its Monday session the political and military situation as well as the recent Tripoli clashes. Al-Mishri called for investigation into those clashes.

The statement said some members objected to trying civilians at the court martial and the legal committee of the HCS was asked to decide on this issue.

Al-Mishri's visit to Turkey coincided with the visits of the Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah and the House of Representatives' designated Prime Minister Fathi Bashagha. Sources said Turkey mediated a solution to the political deadlock in Libya.
