Monday, August 15, 2011 - TAP – "The United Nations (UN) is working hard to find a solution to the Libyan crisis and meet the legitimate rights and aspirations of its people," said United Nations Special Envoy to Libya Abdelilah AL Khatib.
At the end of his meeting on Monday in Tunis with Caretaker Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi, the UN official expressed the international community's consideration to Tunisia for its resistance to pressures resulting from the Libyan crisis.
He also paid tribute to Tunisia for its humanitarian assistance and its key role in welcoming and hosting thousands of Libyan and foreign refugees and easing their repatriation.
The UN Special Envoy to Libya is in Tunisia at a time when rumours circulate about ongoing secret negotiations in Tunisia to find a solution to the Libyan crisis and allow Gaddafi and his family to leave Libya via the Tunisian-Libyan borders.
