U.S. Ambassador and Libyan PM discuss budget and elections

U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, said he met on Monday with Abdel Hamid Dbeibeh, Head of the Government of National Unity (GNU), in order to discuss bilateral relationship and U.S. support to fulfilling the work of the GNU, the budget, and the path to December elections that the Libyan people are counting on, U.S. Embassy in Libya tweeted.

“We encourage all Libyan leaders to work together and make the necessary compromises on behalf of the Libyan people in order to meet Libyans’ expectation of free and fair elections on December 24th,” Norland stated.

Regarding the lack of a legal basis for December elections, Norland pointed out: “Time is like a sword. If you don’t cut it, it will cut you.”
