UN envoy optimistic about reaching political settlement in Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

United Nations envoy Ghassan Salame expressed for the first time on Friday his confidence that a political settlement may be reached in Libya instead of a military solution.

Salame was speaking at a joint press conference with Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui after holding discussions in Tunis.

He explained that his optimism stems from the series of talks he has held with the foreign ministers of member states at the UN Security Council and prominent Libyan leaders, including the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar and head of the Tripoli-based Government of (GNA) of Fayez al-Sarraj.
