The UN envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily has stressed on X that the UN stands ready to support Libyan leaders and institutional players at all levels to come together in a constructive dialogue to reach a political settlement, including on the formation of a unified government to lead the country to elections.
Bathily made his remarks Wednesday after he had returned from "a productive visit" to Al-Aziziya, where he said he was warmly welcomed by a diverse group of people from Warshafana, including elected officials, academics, women, youth, notables & elders, community leaders, civil society activists, unionists, and security officials.
"They expressed frustration about the marginalization of their region and called for meaningful national reconciliation, inclusion in the political process and decision-making, fair distribution of resources. They also expressed their aspirations for a safe and united Libya." Bathily explained.
Bathily's visit to Al-Aziziya came as part of his extensive contacts that he pledged before the UN Security Council to make in order to mobilize support for the faltering political process, which the UN and Libyans want it to end in holding elections.
