The United States on Saturday expressed appreciation to its close partnership with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj and his Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha.

In a tweet, the US Embassy called for cooperation in the interests of providing good governance to the Libyan people.

“US supports rule of law, appreciates close partnerships with PM Sarraj and MOI Bashaga and urges cooperation in the interests of providing good governance to the Libyan people,” the embassy said on Twitter.

Earlier on Saturday, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) called for a full and inclusive political process that will meet the aspirations of the Libyan people.

On Monday, al-Sarraj pledged a cabinet reshuffle amid protests against corruption and deterioration of public services.

Libya has been torn by civil war since the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) was founded in 2015 under a UN-led agreement, but efforts for a long-term political settlement failed because of a military offensive by forces loyal to warlord Khalifa Haftar.
