The United Nation’s envoy for Libya Ghassan Salame has asked to be relieved from his post, saying he can no longer continue his work because of health reasons.

“My health no longer allows this rate of stress,” Mr Salame wrote in a tweet on Monday, adding that he had been asked by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to be relieved of his post.

The former Lebanese minister of culture has played a pivotal role heading the United Nations Support Mission in Libya.

In his tweet he mentioned recent progress he had facilitated between the warring factions in Libya’s bitter civil war.

In January, world leaders met in Berlin at a high-stakes summit to discuss ways to end the conflict.
