Turkish foreign minister to receive UN envoy for Libya

ANKARA (AA) – Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is scheduled to receive the UN’s special envoy for Libya, Jan Kubis on a two-day visit to the country on Saturday.

Invited by the Foreign Ministry, Kubis’ visit is expected to begin on Saturday, the Turkish ministry said in a statement.

“During the meeting, possible steps that could be taken by the international community to support the Government of National Unity and the political settlement process in Libya will be discussed,” it added.

Libya has recently witnessed positive developments following a breakthrough in which rival parties agreed on Feb. 5 on a unified new executive authority that will govern Libya in the lead-up to national elections on Dec. 24.

Libyans hope the new government will end years of civil war that have engulfed the country since the ouster and killing of strongman Muammar al-Qaddafi in 2011.
