U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken affirmed U.S. support for “a sovereign, stable, unified, and secure Libya, free from any outside interference.”
This came during Blenkin’s participation in a ministerial meeting on Libya, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly hosted by France, Germany, and Italy.
Moreover, Blenkin emphasized US support for the presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya, scheduled for December 24.
The US Secretary of State also called on Libyan leaders to take the necessary steps to ensure free and fair elections, as stipulated by the Libyan National Dialogue Forum roadmap, including the need to agree on a constitutional and legal framework.
In addition, Blinken confirmed Washington’s support for the implementation of the Libyan October 2020 ceasefire, including the exit of all foreign forces and mercenaries, as called for in UN Security Council Resolution 2570.
