For the second time in less than a month, the UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame met with the commander of the self-styled army in eastern Libya Khalifa Haftar and discussed the latest developments in the country, Haftar's general command media office reported.

Local media outlets loyal to Haftar said the visit of Salame to Rajma came upon the invitation of Haftar.

On February 18, Haftar and Salame met and discussed the situation in southern Libya, Derna, and the preparations for the Libyan National Conference.

During a meeting for Salame with EU ambassadors in Libya, they expressed support for the UNSMIL efforts for political solution in Libya.

Two days ago, Salame said the National Conference would be held in less than a month, while a Libyan official cited Presidential Council sources as saying that the conference will be held in Ghadames city on March 24, adding that it could adopt the agreements made at the UAE meeting.
