France to host international conference on Libya in November

France will host an international conference on Libya in November 12 as the country prepares for elections at the end of December, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Monday.

“In view of the December elections, France will organize, around the President of the Republic, an international conference on Libya on November 12,” said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, during a press conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

France is asking for the elections to be held on schedule and for the “departure of foreign forces and mercenaries,” said Le Drian

Le Drian and his German and Italian counterparts, Heiko Maas and Luigi Di Maio, will also co-chair a meeting devoted to Libya on tomorrow in New York.
