The UN envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily met with the French envoy to Libya, Paul Soler, and the French ambassador, Mostafa Mihraje, in Tripoli, where they discussed ways to support Libyans to reach a political agreement that leads to the unification of institutions and paves the way for holding elections.

Bathily said in on “X” platform on Saturday that the meeting witnessed agreement on the need for Libya’s regional and international partners to assume their responsibility in facilitating a sustainable solution that ends the current situation.

The attendees stressed the importance of protecting Libya from sliding back into a long-term conflict that could expose Libya’s territorial integrity to serious dangers. 

"We reviewed developments in the national reconciliation process and reconstruction efforts in eastern Libya. We stressed the need to adopt a unified approach to reconstruction that gives priority to the needs of the affected population and enjoys the trust and support of everyone, including international partners.”

The UN Security Council is scheduled to hold a session on Libya next Thursday to discuss developments in the political situation in the country and the role of the UN mission.
