Tunisian President Kais Saied and Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Libya Stephanie Williams discussed the latest developments in Libya during a meeting on Wednesday.

The two sides also discussed UN's efforts to achieve a political settlement in Libya, according to a statement released by the Tunisian presidency.

Saied stressed that the solution to the Libyan crisis should be based on the agreement of all its factions away from any foreign interference.

The president reiterated Tunisia's commitment not to interfering in Libya's internal affairs and to finding peaceful solutions to end the bloodshed in the neighboring war-torn country under the aegis of the UN.

He underlined the importance of the role of neighboring countries to find a peaceful solution to this crisis, "referring to the important coordination and consultation between Tunisia and Algeria to achieve stability in Libya," according to the statement.

Saied proposed to host in Tunisia a national dialogue which brings together various components of the Libyan people, "especially since our country is the most affected by the situation in Libya."

The UN official praised Tunisia's important role in achieving durable stability there.

According to Williams, it is necessary to go to the political dialogue as soon as possible given the dangerous conditions in Libya at the present time.
