US ambassador, HoR Speaker discuss Libya developments in Egypt

The United States (US) ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, met the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqila Saleh in Cairo on Sunday to discuss latest developments regarding Libya’s political transition, saying the meeting came as the HoR was preparing to debate a new national budget.

A statement by the US embassy in Libya said Norland had reaffirmed the US commitment to support a Libyan-led mechanism to manage oil revenues in a way that promotes maximum transparency and cooperation between all political forces in Libya and to facilitate early agreement on a path to parliamentary and presidential elections as soon as possible.

“The Speaker confirmed HoR participation in Constitutional talks with the High Council of State due to resume in Cairo on May 15, facilitated by UN Special Adviser to the Secretary General Stephanie Williams.” The statement said.

It added that Libyan national elections remain essential to legitimizing Libya’s political institutions and leadership in the eyes of the Libyan people and the world.
