The President of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohamed Al-Manfi, left today for the United States of America, to participate in the meetings of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, next week. The exile’s visit lasts for a week, during which he will deliver a speech to Libya before the General Assembly in which he will explain the important issues related to the political solution, the organization of elections on their scheduled date for the twenty-fourth of next December, and the national reconciliation procedures that the Presidential Council pledged to achieve..
