The ambassador of the United States Richard Norland said his country is going to engage in UN-led efforts aiming to find a political solution to the crisis via negotiations.

Norland said Friday in a televised statement that the US wants to work with all Libyan parties to form a united government that can achieve peace and stability.

"It is the first time an ambassador appointed by President Donald Trump and approved by the Senate arrives to work in Libya, and I will be working from Tripoli soon." Norland said.

Norland presented his credentials last Thursday to the Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala at the US Libya embassy in Tunis, stressing that he will be working with all parties to end the conflict in the country.
