The United States and Tunisia discussed regional and international support for the upcoming Libyan national elections, next December, and the implementation of the ceasefire agreement signed between the Libyan parties.


This came, according to what the US State Department published on its website today, Wednesday, during the meeting of US State Department Adviser Derek Chollet and Tunisian Foreign Minister Othman Grandi in Tunis to discuss issues of common concern.


The two officials touched upon the fruitful bilateral relations, especially with regard to security cooperation and their cooperation in the International Council, and reiterated the centrality of democratic values.


The British Ambassador to Libya, Caroline Harndell, confirmed her country's support for the upcoming Libyan elections, praising "the efforts and preparations made by the High Electoral Commission in the previous stages, and its quest to present a professional model in the electoral field that achieves the highest international standards."

This came during her meeting with the head of the Libyan High National Elections Commission, Imad al-Sayeh, to discuss the latest developments in the Libyan electoral process.

The two sides reviewed - according to what was reported by the Libyan "Al-Wasat" portal - the preparations for the next stages after the voter registration stage, and the options presented in the Libyan political scene with regard to the constitutional rule that will determine the general agenda of the commission.
