State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter responded to a question about the possibility of the United States returning its ambassador to Tripoli after the political progress in Libya.

"We currently have nothing in the pipeline, and we do not plan to announce the sending of any ambassador to the region," Porter said, according to a statement issued Tuesday.

On March 10, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken welcomed the House of Representatives' confidence in the National Unity Government headed by Abdulhamid Dabaiba.

He encouraged Dabaiba's government "take the necessary steps to ensure free and fair national elections on December 24," calling on all parties to maintain this positive momentum and support the full implementation of the ceasefire agreement, end foreign interference, and remove foreign troops and mercenaries.
