U.S. Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, during his remarks at a Town Hall meeting of State Department employees for the holiday season, commented on US engagement in Libya:

Similarly, in Libya, we have a conflict that's very chaotic today still. Terrorist organizations continue to operate in parts of Libya. We continue our efforts to counter those terrorist organizations and support the reconciliation process for the Government of Libya as well. Ambassador Bodde has been very directly engaged in a new process led by the new UN representative to see if we can bring the parties together under a new election system in Libya and re-establish that government, begin to restore civil authority to the country. A lot of hard work ahead and many people have been engaged in that.
