The Tunisian Foreign Minister Khamis Jhinaoui renewed Thursday his country's support to UN and Libyan efforts to end the conflict in the country, saying there can be no military solution in Libya.

Jhinaoui met with Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala in Tunis and said his country will continue to convince active stakeholders in Libya to help the country end the military conflict and return to political process.

The Libyan Foreign Ministry said the two officials discussed issues of joint interests and cooperation between Libya and Tunisia, operating the maritime transportation line and other issues.

Sayala reviewed also with Jhinaoui the latest developments in Tripoli and the efforts of the UN envoy Ghassan Salame and stakeholders as well as the countries supporting the attacking forces to hold the National Conference as per an initiative proposed by Fayez Al-Sirraj and the previous action plan of the UNSMIL.

In Tunisia, Sayala received the credentials of the new US ambassador to Libya Richard Norland.
