He wished Mr Al Menfi and the Government of National Unity luck in leading Libya to safety.

They discussed bilateral relations and ways of strengthening ties in various fields. They also spoke about political developments in Libya.

Sheikh Mohamed expressed the UAE's readiness to provide support and co-operation to overcome challenges, and to continue working with regional and international parties to promote peace and stability in Libya.
