Spokesman of HOR, Fathi al-Marimi, said Le Drian met with Saleh at the request of President Macaron two months after Paris meeting, which formed a road map and attended by all the Libyan parties with the support of the International Community. This roadmap was later adopted by the United Nations Security Council.
Le Drian stated, “The only solution of the problem of legitimacy in Libya is to hold the December elections, which was confirmed by the Paris agreement on 29 May.
