Kuwait's Foreign Minister Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah has reiterated his country's firm stance that supports stability, peace and security in Libya, calling on all parties to renounce violence and resort to dialogue.

The remarks came in a statement by the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry after a meeting between Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah and Presidential Council's delegation headed by Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala and Deputy Head Ahmed Mitig.

The meeting saw discussions about the current security challenges in Libya, as Mitig expressed Libya's appreciation for Kuwait's role in calling for calm and unity in Libya.

Kuwait is a non-permanent member at the current Security Council General Assembly and it has supported the UK-drafted resolution that called for a ceasefire and return of Haftar's forces to their previous positions, but US, Russian objections doomed that resolution to failure.

Latest numbers of deaths and injuries in Tripoli say that 376 people have been killed and 1822 injured since Haftar's offensive started on April 04, according to WHO.
