U.N.-backed Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj will meet President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Wednesday, a French official said, at a time Serraj's administration is unhappy about Paris's perceived support for eastern commander Khalifa Haftar.

"France supports Prime Minister Serraj. We were opposed to this Haftar offensive," said the source. "The question is not to seek a scapegoat, but to know what to do in this complicated situation." The source said Paris, Rome, Berlin and London had coordinated this week on organising Serraj's visits across Europe as part of efforts to speak with one voice in finding a solution to the crisis, including a ceasefire.
