UN envoy for Libya briefs Chinese officials on efforts to resolve crisis

Abdel-Al-Khatib

United Nations special envoy for Libya has met with China's foreign minister Yang Jiechi to discuss the crisis in the North African country.

Abdel-Elah Al-Khatib has recently returned from Libya where he talked to representatives of the warring parties.

The Secretary-General's spokesperson Martin Nesirky says the UN envoy expressed his satisfaction with UN efforts to find a political settlement.

"The Special envoy also briefed Mr. Jiechi on his talks with the Chairman of the Ad Hoc High Committee of the African Union for Libya and other regional groups, which are aimed at enhancing international cooperation and unifying all efforts towards ending the crisis in a manner consistent with the legitimate aspirations of the people of Libya."

The unrest in Libya began in February following a government crack-down on pro-democracy protestors.
