The US Ambassador/Envoy to Libya, Richard Norland, met on Wednesday with the UAE Ambassador to Libya, Muhammad Al Shamsi for talks that focused on efforts to hold elections in Libya as soon as possible.

"I thanked him for the role the UAE is playing on the UN SC and in its engagements with key Libyan leaders to stabilize Libya," Norland wrote on Twitter.

In a phone call with the Presidential Council Vice President Abdullah Al-Lafi, last Monday, ambassador Norland called on the Government of National Unity to continue engagement with Libyan institutions to pave the way for presidential and parliamentary elections as soon as possible.
