US ambassador speaks with Libya’s Prime Minister on the phone

The United States ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, spoke Sunday with the Prime Minister of the new Libyan executive authority, Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah to congratulate him on the outcomes of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) process.

The US embassy said in a statement that ambassador Norland had encouraged the Prime Minister to identify a small, competent, technocratic cabinet team that can quickly be granted confidence by the House of Representatives (HoR) in accordance with the LPDF roadmap.

Norland also urged Dbeibah to begin, after receiving HoR’s vote of confidence, work on addressing the pressing needs of Libyans throughout the country on key issues such as electricity, COVID-19 response, and preparing for elections in December.

The statement also indicated that the US wishes the new interim executive authority success during this pivotal transition period and stands ready to assist Libya in pursuit of a stable, prosperous, and democratic future.
