The two sides discussed the role of the Arab League in support of the settlement process in Libya under the auspices of the United Nations, including by supporting the new executive authority under the leadership of the President of the Presidency Council, Muhammad al-Manfi, and Prime Minister Abdel-Hamid al-Dabaiba, and encouraging the Libyans to complete the implementation of the political roadmap adopted by the Forum for Political Dialogue.
