The Presidential Council (PC) member, Mohamed Ammari Zayed, discussed during his meeting with the Turkish ambassador to Libya, Serhat Aksen, on Monday, the political track towards resolution of the Libyan crisis and the outcomes of the Morocco, Geneva, and Egypt, meetings.

Ammari pointed to the initiative he recently put forward regarding holding parliamentary elections based on the constitutional declaration and the current election law, provided that all parties respect and adhere to the outcomes of the elections.

"The solution to the Libyan crisis lies in conducting parliamentary elections on the basis of the constitutional declaration and the current election law to choose a new parliament that unifies institutions and elects a national government that extends its control over all parts of the country," the media office of Zayed quoted him as saying.

He added that holding elections is possible after the success achieved in the municipal council elections that have been conducted in many municipalities.

The meeting, which was held at the Prime Minister’s Office, also dealt with aspects of security, military, and economic cooperation between Libya and Turkey, in the framework of the memorandum of understanding Libya signed with Turkey, which lays the ground for the return of Turkish companies to implement their previous contracts and their participation in the proposed development projects.

Discussions also touched upon the scholarships provided by the Turkish government to Libyan students and cooperation in the field of education, as the Turkish ambassador affirmed his country's continued support for the Government of National Accord (GNA) and its commitment to the pledges stipulated in the memoranda of understanding signed in between.
