The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, stressed to the United States (US) special envoy and ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, the need to mobilize the international community to resolve the difficulties that are hindering the holding of elections in Libya, especially the constitutional basis that is still unclear, according to Dbiebah's media office.

The media office added that the meeting saw discussions on efforts that aim at holding elections and removing hurdles, in addition to discussing the return of the US embassy to operate in Tripoli.

 Dbiebah confirmed that his government is ready to do its job in order to make elections a successful process, while Norland hailed the government's efforts to clarify its readiness for holding elections when the constitutional basis is ready, referring to the simulated elections done last Saturday.

They also reviewed joint economic and legal files, and fruitful cooperation in order to create an effective partnership, in addition to discussing government spending and the steps taken by the government regarding disclosure and transparency.

Norland headed, earlier on Tuesday, a US delegation participating in the work of the Development Partners Forum, which was held in Tripoli, in the presence of a number of ministers of the Government of National Unity, foreign ambassadors to Libya and representatives of international organizations.
