The French President Emmanuel Macron met with the Head of Libya's Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi at the Elysee Palace in the French capital, Paris. Menfi's meeting with Macron comes after their participation in the fifth edition of "Paris Peace Forum", which kicked off in Paris on Friday.

The Presidential Council said in a statement on Saturday that the meeting hosted heads of states and governments, as well as representatives of international organizations and focuses on combatting global warming, strengthening health systems and economic cooperation, and the situation in the world after the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian war, including the high level of inflation and energy prices, the increase in food insecurity and the ongoing massive economic and political turmoil.

Menfi met late in October with the special envoy of the French President to Libya Paul Soler, who said that his country would play a positive role in the stability of Libya through an agreement and a political solution that lies in achieving simultaneous parliamentary and presidential elections on the basis of a consensual constitutional framework.
