The UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame and his deputy for political affairs, Stephanie Williams, discussed Thursday with the mayors of the western municipalities, the preparations for the UN-backed National Conference.

This comes at a time when Reuters quoted sources, described as reliable, as saying that the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) intends to postpone the convening of the Forum.

The conference could be postponed until next March, in order to gain more support from the parties to the conflict, according to Reuters.
