The Acting Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Raisedon Zenenga, has reaffirmed commitment to continue efforts to support a fair and transparent political process in Libya.

A process he described as led by the Libyans to ensure conducting parliamentary and presidential elections, in accordance with an agreed constitutional framework and consistent with the outcomes of the Berlin conferences, the Stabilization Support Conference in Libya, and the Paris Conference.

This came during his meeting, Thursday, with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Government of National Unity, Najla Al-Manqoush, where they discussed the latest political developments in Libya, according to a statement by Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Minister thanked the acting head of UNSMIL for his condolences on the victims of the fuel tanker explosion in Bint Baya, stressing the need not to politicize humanitarian actions and services for any reason.

For his part, Zenenga welcomed the positive efforts that led to the lifting of force majeure, and the resumption of oil and gas production from Libyan ports and their return to normal production and export rates.

Earlier, Al-Manqoush discussed with the Qatari ambassador to Libya, Khaled Al-Dosari, steps to enforce security and bolster stability, and continue work to hold elections as soon as possible.

 A Foreign Ministry statement said that Al-Manqoush received Al-Dosari, who delivered a message from the Qatari Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani.

The meeting also dealt with the latest developments of the political situation in the country, the steps taken by the government to enforce security and bolster stability, and the continuous work to hold elections as soon as possible to achieve what the Libyan people demand, according to the statement.
