Stephanie Williams, Aguila Saleh discuss political solution to Libyan crisis

The Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Libya, Stephanie Williams, on Friday met with the Speaker of Libya’s eastern-based House of Representatives (parliament), Aguila Saleh, in Geneva and discussed the need to intensify efforts to find an inclusive political solution to the Libyan crisis.

“Acting SRSG Stephanie Williams met today in Geneva with HoR Speaker Aguila Saleh, to discuss, among others, the revival of political dialogue, Speaker Saleh’s initiative, and the need to intensify efforts to find an inclusive political solution to the Libyan crisis,” said a statement issued by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

“Acting SRSG Williams welcomed Speaker Saleh’s support to an immediate and lasting ceasefire, especially in the city of Sirte,” the statement added.

It revealed that the officials also welcomed the National Oil Corporation’s announcement of lifting the force majeure on oil exports after nearly 6 months of suspension.

Williams and Saleh stressed the necessity to avoid any obstacles in oil flow “as it belongs to all Libyans; and urged that revenues expenditures be managed in a transparent and professional manner,” the statement said.
