UN Envoy to Libya holds talks with Tunisian FM on role of regional actors

U.N. Special Envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily held talks on Tuesday with Tunisian Foreign Minister Othman Jerandi to discuss “ways to encourage Libyan political and security actors to come together in Libya and agree on a way out of the crisis by holding elections as soon as possible,” according to the U.N. envoy.

In a statement via Twitter, Bathily said that he and Jerandi “called on relevant institutions to swiftly finalize the constitutional basis for elections as the country nears the one year anniversary of the postponement of the 2021 elections.”

“We agreed on the need for strengthened coordination among regional actors to encourage all Libyan stakeholders to reach an agreement to break the deadlock,” Bathily added.
