The United Nations will postpone the start of talks to end Libya’s political crisis until early next week, its special envoy said on Monday.

Talks had been scheduled to start on Tuesday but Bernadino Leon told reporters they would start next week to give the conflict parties more time to work out details.

He spoke in Tripoli after meeting a rival parliament challenging the elected House of Representatives working out of the east.
