Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha

The ex-Minister of Interior, Fathi Bashagha, said the appointment of US ambassador to Libya Richard Norland as a special envoy in the country reflects increased interest in Libya's crisis by Washington.

Bashagha welcomed on Twitter the new mandate of the US special envoy, saying this shows the real desire of the US to help Libyans remove foreign forces and mercenaries as well as support the political process until general elections are held next December.

He also looked forward to seeing all Libyan local actors working together to achieve a political solution via December general elections.

Norland was announced by the Department of State as the US special envoy to Libya in addition to his current job as ambassador in the country.
