The US Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs of Department of State, Yael Lempert, agreed with the UN Advisor on Libya, Stephanie Williams, on the need for the Joint Committee of the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) on the constitutional track, which is due to commence their second round of talks tomorrow in Cairo, to produce tangible results.

In a meeting in Tunisia on Saturday, Williams said, according to her Twitter account, that “we should honor the right of the Libyan people to democratically elect those who govern them through the ballot box in the context of a firm constitutional framework”, adding that it is also critical that calm on the ground is maintained.

Meanwhile, the US State Department reiterated on Twitter that Lempert had underlined to Williams the importance of HoR-HCS talks hosted by Egypt with UN facilitation.

“The talks are a critical opportunity to define a credible new electoral roadmap as the existing roadmap transitions to a new phase.” The US State Department added.
