US ambassador: Needless offensive on Tripoli must end to find peaceful solution in Libya

The US ambassador to Libya Richard Norland spoke with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord Fayez Al-Sarraj on Friday to reiterate the urgent need to end the destabilizing flow of Russian and other foreign military equipment and mercenaries into Libya and welcome the Government of National Accord’s important contributions to defeating terrorism and achieving peace.

According to a statement on the page of the US embassy in Libya, the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Prime Minister Al-Sarraj discussed earlier in the day, the needless offensive against Tripoli must end so all foreign forces can depart and Libyan leaders who are prepared to lay down their weapons can come together in peaceful dialogue on the issues that divide them.

US ambassador Norland informed Al-Sarraj that he intends to travel to Libya as soon as circumstances permit to formally present his credentials and further deepen the US-Libya partnership.
