U.S. Envoy to meet Haftar and Egyptian officials in Cairo, U.S. Embassy says

U.S. Special Envoy and Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, is in Cairo on August 10 and 11 to meet with Egyptian officials and Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), as part of U.S. efforts to support Libyan parliamentary and presidential elections in December, according to U.S. Embassy in Libya.

“As with other recent engagements with key Libyan figures, Ambassador Norland continues to focus on the urgency of supporting the difficult compromises necessary to establish the constitutional basis and legal framework needed now in order for the elections to take place on Dec. 24,” the Embassy tweeted on Tuesday.

“The United States supports the right of the Libyan people to select their leaders through an open democratic process and calls on key figures to use their influence at this critical stage to do what is best for all Libyans,” it added.
