The first day of new United Nations-led talks between delegates from war-torn Libya failed to reach an agreement on a constitutional framework to hold elections as planned in December, the United Nations said.
The United Nations Support Mission in Libya said participants at Wednesday's meeting held via videoconference discussed four proposals, the contents of which were not disclosed.
"A final decision on the constitutional basis" for legislative and presidential elections would be taken up at the next meeting, UNSMIL said, without giving a date.
UNSMIL acknowledged the failure of that session after four days, due to a lack of consensus.
