"Here, I will express thanks to Egypt for hosting the successful Hurghada talks on security in Libya," Norland said on Twitter on Sunday.

Norland stated that he is currently continuing his consultations in his latest visit to Cairo.

He also added there would an exchange of views on how best to support the upcoming Libyan political dialogue forum.

The Red Sea resort city of Hurghada hosted two days of talks last week between delegations representing the Government of the National Accord and Libyan National Army facilitated by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSML).

According to the UNSML's statement, the talks focused on the military and security aspects as well as the resumption of oil production and export.

The talks in Hurghada also yielded a set of recommendations, including the immediate release and exchange of all those detained during military operations before the end of October; and putting a stop to all hate speech campaigns in Libyan media, replacing it with a discourse of tolerance and reconciliation.

The 5+5 Libyan Joint Military Commission talks between the Libyan rivals will continue this week.
