The agreement provides for the creation of a national union government, recognition of a single parliament and the establishment of a state council, he explained in a statement to the press.

He also noted that the next step will be a UN Security Council’s resolution recognizing and supporting the government as the only representative of the Libyans, pointing out that his country’s delegate to the Security Council is working on a resolution project.
