The UN Secretary-General António Guterres said there are indications that the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj and the commander of the self-styled army in eastern Libya Khalifa Haftar could reach an agreement on the conflict for the army command.

Guterres said after a high-level meeting in Tunisia on Saturday with officials from the Arab League, the European Union and the African Union - the group known as the 'Libya Quartet' - there is a word that defines what he thinks and feels about Libya today that word is hope.

"This is a moment of hope for Libya, I have hope because I believe that it is possible to have now a Libyan-led political process aiming at the solution of the Libyan problems." Said the UN Secretary-General in a press conference after the meeting.

Meanwhile, the President of the African Union Moussa Faki said there will be a national reconciliation conference in next July in Addis Ababa to resolve the crisis in Libya.

He added in the press conference that the reconciliation conference is an opportunity for Libyans to end the conflict.

The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union Federica Mogherini said the EU will work with the Arab League and the African Union under the auspices of the UN to support the political process in Libya.

She added that the EU is committed to helping Libya and fixing its security system which will help stabilize southern countries such as Tunisia.

After the end of the quartet meeting, the UN envoy Ghassan Salame said the UN, African Union, Arab League and the EU all agreed to adopt and commit to the results of the National Conference in Ghadames in mid-April.

Salame tweeted Saturday, addressing Libyans, saying "don't miss out this opportunity and shut this window for the building of your united, civilian, sovereign and just country.
