The UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame said there are three tracks that his mission has started working on in the country after Berlin conference; political, economic and military ones.

Speaking to Sputnik on Monday, Salame said the military track is a Commission of 5+5 including officers from both parties which both gave the names of their representatives, adding that the commission will convene in the coming days.

"The priority is for these three tracks, especially the military and security one. I hope I push it forward in the coming days in Geneva." Salame said.

The UN envoy said the core of the 5+5 commission's tasks is to work on sending away foreign fighters from Libya as soon as possible

He added that the political track starts by the end of January with a dialogue of 13 representatives from the House of Representatives and other 13 from the High Council of State plus a number of independent persons, women and minority representatives.

"All issues are on the table, including the constitution draft which was passed by the Constitution Drafting Assembly, elections laws, dates for the elections and maybe reforming a unity agreement in Libya to supervise the holding of the elections." Salame explained.

He also said that the economic track already began as a financial and economic committee started its meetings on January 06.
