President Obama joined National Security Advisor Tom Donilon’s meeting today with Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan during the Prime Minister’s first official visit to Washington. The President expressed the United States’ support for the Libyan people and their government as they continue their democratic transition. The President reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring that the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi are brought to justice, and stressed the importance of Libya’s cooperation with the ongoing investigation. The two leaders discussed how the United States and Libya could work together, along with the United Nations Support Mission in Libya and our partners in the international community, to strengthen Libya's government institutions, and particularly to enhance security and the rule of law. The President noted that he was pleased to nominate Deborah K. Jones to serve as the next U.S. Ambassador to Libya and represent the American people during this important stage of Libya's new democracy.
