A Libyan-Libyan meeting in Tripoli has reached a consensus on unifying all state institutions and creating a unified government in the country.

This came in a statement issued on Monday at the end of the meeting, which was attended by the 5+5 Joint Military Commission and a number of commanders of military and security units in Tripoli, in addition the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily.

The statement also said that the dialog should be Libyan-Libyan and inside Libyan territory, rejecting foreign interference in Libyan affairs, and complying fully with all that resulted from the dialog between military and security leaders with the military committee in its first meeting in Tunis and second in Tripoli.

The statement also called for “renouncing all forms of fighting and violence on Libyan soil, increasing efforts to solve the problems of the displaced, and those affected by fighting and wars, completing national reconciliation efforts and providing reparation, and proceeding with the elections.

It urged the House of Representatives and the Supreme Council of the State to “complete the measures entrusted to them” and that the next meeting be held in Benghazi during Ramadan.

The UN mission pointed in its statement that the meeting included a number of military and security unit commanders in the western, eastern and southern regions.

During the meeting, they discussed the role of the military and security institutions in providing an environment conducive to pushing the political process and holding free and fair elections in 2023.

Bathily renewed his call for “consolidating peace in Libya,” noting that the leaders of security and military units will play an important role in agreeing on security arrangements and other key issues accompanying the electoral process.
