The UN envoy to Libya, Jan Kubis, called Monday for speeding the approval of the constitutional basis for Libya's general elections in December.

Speaking at Libya neighboring countries meeting in Algeria: an event that discusses support for the political process and elections, Kubis urged stakeholders and neighboring countries to send elections monitors to Libya and called on the House of Representatives to speed up the approval process of elections' legislations and constitutional basis. He also called on Libya and its neighboring states to manage their joint borders.

Meanwhile, the Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush said at the meeting that Libya looks forward to having a political system based on democracy and partnership with neighboring countries, saying Libya is preparing for an international conference but didn't specify a date.

The Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra also reiterated support for efforts to achieve stability and security in Libya and end the country’s crisis, which needs a Libyan-led and Libyan-owned solution with consensus at the Security Council and neighboring countries.

The meeting in Algeria was attended by the UN, African Union, Arab League, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, Niger, Chad, and Democratic Congo's Foreign Ministers.
