The newly appointed head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) says he is coming to the country to work with and for its people.
Veteran Lebanese diplomat and academic Ghassan Salamé is in New York for talks with UN officials and ambassadors before heading to Libya next week.
He was in Paris earlier this week for the signing of a declaration by two of Libya’s political leaders, which the UN Security Council has welcomed.
Mr Salamé told May Yaacoub that since the announcement of his appointment in June, he has received countless e-mails and Tweets from the country’s people.
