The US State Department has described the Government of National Accord (GNA) as a "trusted partner in combating terrorism", saying that Washington will continue to cooperate with the GNA, in order to curb the spread of terrorist groups.

"Libya lacks a comprehensive anti-terrorism law, although the Libyan penal code criminalizes manifestations that threaten national security, including terrorism, encouraging terrorist acts and dealing with funds to support such acts, the report read.
