The US embassy said Saturday in a statement that it would remain actively involved with all Libyan parties, including the Government of National Accord and the House of Representatives, that reject foreign interference and seek to come together in peaceful dialogue.

It added that the US ambassador Richard Norland had spoken by phone with the Head of the Libyan Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj to receive an update on efforts to finalize a Libyan solution that would consolidate a lasting ceasefire, promote transparency in economic institutions, and advance the political process under UN auspices.

It also said that ambassador Norland commended the Al-Sarraj's leadership as responsible Libyan parties come together in defense of Libya’s sovereignty to implement a demilitarized solution in central Libya and enable the National Oil Corporation to resume its vital work on behalf of all Libyans.

Meanwhile, the US ambassador also consulted by phone on Saturday with Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha about efforts to build confidence among parties leading to a comprehensive Libyan solution for Sirte and Jufra.
