WASHINGTON, The Department of State announced Monday that US Ambassador to Libya Richard Norland will now also serve in the capacity of US Special Envoy for Libya in addition to Chief of Mission for Libya.

“In his role as US Special Envoy, Ambassador Norland will lead US diplomatic efforts to promote international support for a Libyan-led, inclusive, and negotiated political solution to the conflict, facilitated through the UN,” reads a statement by the Department of State Spokesperson Ned Price.

Ambassador Norland, a Career Minister in the Foreign Service and a three-time ambassador, has served as Chief of Mission at the Libya External Office in Tunis since August 2019.

“The addition of the US Special Envoy role to Ambassador Norland’s Chief of Mission responsibilities signifies the importance the United States attaches to focused, high-level diplomatic outreach in support of the Libyan political process culminating in elections on December 24, 2021,” added the statement.

Price argued that Ambassador Norland will work closely with key partners to strengthen efforts to keep the political process on track and ensure the removal of foreign forces from Libya.
