Leon visited Misrata to discuss security arrangments. The GNC said his visit took place without approvals. 

The General Staff’s Operations Room in the Western region issued a statement Tuesday to disown any previous knowledge of the meeting held in Misrata on Monday between the UNSMIL’s Head, Bernardino Leon, and the western region’s revolutionary leaders.

“No one consulted the Operations Room officials and none of its revolutionary leaders, who are located in western Libya, attended Misrata meeting, so the Room totally rejects and condemns any attempts to add its name on such meetings' lists, which it was not part of.” The statement reads.
