Taking the floor during the meeting, UN Special Envoy for Libya Jan Kubis stated that he invited the participating countries to send observers for the Libyan elections. He also called the House of Representatives (HoR), which has been hindering the national reconciliation process, to enact laws to establish the legal infrastructure necessary for the elections.

Speaking at the meetings, Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush stated that the Government of National Unity (GNU) wants to increase cooperation and coordination with neighboring countries. In addition to this, Mangoush stated that GNU is making efforts to organize a consultation meeting on the current situation in Libya, with the participation of the UN and other active countries.

Speaking on behalf of the host country Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra stated that the solution to the Libyan crisis is only possible through dialogue between the Libyan parties and emphasized that the support of the international community is very important.

At the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), held between June 28 and July 2, no consensus could be reached on the legal basis of the elections, leading to uncertainty regarding the framework of the general elections to be held on December 24.
