The U.N. special envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame met on Sunday with head of the Justice and Construction Party Mohamed Sawan to exchange views on the situation in Libya.
They discussed ways to overcome challenges facing the return to the political process.
Sawan expressed full support for Salame’s efforts, emphasizing the need to stop the fighting in Tripoli and resume the political track.
This meeting comes as part of Salame’s efforts to talk with a number of politicians and entities in Libya to promote a political solution in the country.
However, Sawan said the international silence on the human rights violations in Libya undermines confidence in the international community and makes the return to political talks difficult.
During the meeting, the two sides discussed Salame’s foreign tour, specifically his visit to the United States and Russia, and his assessment of the international situation on what is happening in Libya after more than 50 days of military operations in Tripoli.
For his part, Sawan confirmed his full support to the Government of National Accord. He stressed that there will be no return to negotiations before “stopping the aggression on the capital” in reference to the operations of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Tripoli.
Earlier on Sunday, Salame met with a delegation of European politicians, academics, and journalists who are on unofficial visit to Tripoli.
Salame briefed the European delegation on the crisis in Libya and the implications of international foreign policy, especially the European one, on the situation in Libya.
The European Monitoring Commission is visiting Tripoli upon the request of the High Council of State in order to see the reality of the ongoing war on Tripoli waged by the LNA.
