Linda Thomas Greenfield, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, called to the international community to support the Libyan general elections that will take place on December 24. Greenfield urged the parties to take precautions against all negative developments that could hinder the elections.

After her meetings with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU) Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh in New York, Greenfield shared on her Twitter account that she supports the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), which is a very important step for ending the conflict in Libya and for the political process, and that the elections will be held. She stated that it should take place on the previously determined date of December 24.

It was noted that, after the UN Security Council meetings on Libya on July 18, a consensus was reached among the participants that the Prime Ministry and the Presidential Council elections would be held on December 24, within the scope of the roadmap. In the tweet, it was stated that the LPDF members, as well as the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HSC), have a very important opportunity to determine the future of the Libyan people and fulfill their will.

Following a more active policy in the Libyan crisis with the Biden administration, the US hosted the UNSC meetings on Libya, which started on July 16.
