The Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj has received an invitation from the French President Emmanuel Macron to visit Paris, his media office reported Sunday.

The media office added that the invitation was made on the phone as Al-Sarraj talked to the French ambassador to Libya, Beatrice de Helene.

Al-Sarraj and de Helene talked about the developments in Libya and the bilateral relations between France and Libya, as the latter said Macron hailed the peace initiative made by Al-Sarraj on August 21.

Al-Sarraj accepted the invitation and said his initiative included a ceasefire and resumption of oil production and exports as well as holding elections, adding that friend countries should assist Libya to materialize these decisions.
