The US embassy in Libya has urged for continued calm in Libya and warned against any effort to achieve political gains by risking violence.
“On the political front, we urge the HoR and HSC to close the gap on the few remaining differences over a constitutional basis for elections.” The US embassy added.
These remarks came after the failure of the Geneva meetings between the Head of the High Council of State and the Speaker of House of Representatives to result in consensus on constitutional basis for elections.
The US embassy added that it is imperative to build on progress toward transparent management and oversight of oil revenues in Libya and to restore full oil production immediately to address hardships faced by the Libyan people.
It congratulated the UN Advisor Stephanie Williams on the progress achieved in the Geneva talks and on the extension of her UN role.
