February 7, 2021


Ambassador Norland spoke today with Prime Minister-elect Abdul Hamid Dabaiba to congratulate him on the outcomes of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum process. Ambassador Norland encouraged the Prime Minister-elect to identify a small, competent, technocratic Cabinet team that can quickly be granted confidence by the House of Representatives in accordance with the LPDF roadmap and begin work on addressing the pressing needs of Libyans throughout the country on key issues such as electricity, COVID-19 response, and preparing for elections in December. The United States wishes the new interim executive success during this pivotal transition period and stands ready to assist Libya in pursuit of a stable, prosperous, and democratic future.
