Al-Sarraj said that “we agreed to continue consolations and discussions.” He added that “I grab this opportunity to thank all members of the dialogue committee for their keenness to support the political deal, and their consensual spirit, all confirmed that the political agreement is the base ground for all of us, there is no returning.”
Al–Sarraj thanked the United Nations envoy to Libya, Martin Kobler, and the mission for all their efforts, and “we renew our call for all sons of the nation, who haven’t joined us yet to put the country’s interests above any other considerations,” he stated.
