The UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame said that details of the Abu Dhabi meeting, which gathered the Chairman of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj and the Dignity Operation leader, lies only with the two men.

Salame said in an interview with Libya Al Ahrar channel that the Emiratis did not attend the meeting, but have conditioned the presence of the UN mission.

"The meeting was not planned for, but came during Hafter's visit to the UAE to conduct medical examinations, and coincided with Al-Sarraj presence in the UAE on a working visit," Salame added.

He also emphasized rejection to any military solution, saying "it is impossible and unsecured", reiterating at the same time support for the political solution in Libya.
