The United Nations Mission in Libya said on its Twitter account that the UN and the African Union delegations renewed during their meeting with Marshal Haftar "their full support for a political settlement aimed at ending the transitional phase in Libya."

The meeting was also attended by the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Ghassan Salamé.

The UN's Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Peacebuilding, Rosemary DiCarlo, said in a statement that the two-day visit to Libya "aims to support UN-led efforts to reach a political settlement that will end Libya's long transitional period, conduct national elections and enhance the security, stability and living conditions of the Libyan people."

Before the meeting, the delegations met with the head of Libya's Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj and High Council of State leader, Khaled Al-Mishri on Tuesday in the capital Tripoli.
