The UN envoy and Head of UNSMIL, Abdoulaye Bathily, met on Wednesday in Tripoli with the Libyan Foreign Minister, Najla Al-Mangoush, and stressed the need to limit foreign interventions in Libyan affairs.
A statement by the Foreign Ministry said Bathily reiterated the need to reduce the interference of those actors that obstruct peace and stability efforts in order to make room for the implementation of the electoral process.
In the Meantime, Al-Mangoush reaffirmed Libyans’ aspirations for stability, development, prosperity and reconstruction, and stressed the need to preserve Libya’s unity and sovereignty.
Al-Mangoush also expressed the commitment of the Government of National Unity (GNU) and her Ministry to the success of the political process in Libya.
“The GNU is ready to take the needed steps to pave the way for political stability, leading to parliamentary and presidential elections as soon as possible as per a correct constitutional basis.” She remarked.
Bathily, on the other hand, expressed support for the efforts of the GNU regarding the electoral process, stressing the importance of establishing a consensual path to peace and stability led by Libya, saying the solution to the Libyan crisis must come from the Libyans themselves.
