Libya's parliament and High Council of State denied that their leaders had arranged to hold a meeting outside the country.

Meanwhile, a parliamentary committee has kicked off its work in drafting a new roadmap to end the country's crisis.

The committee met for a second time in the capital, Tripoli. It will be in contact with all Libyan political, military, security sides and others as it attempts to resolve the crisis.

It said it will first meet with the High Council of State and national authority tasked with drafting the constitution. It will also meet with the Presidential Council and political parties.

An aide to the parliament speaker denied reports that Aguila Saleh was scheduled to meet with head of the High Council of State Khalid al-Mishri in Morocco on Sunday.

He stressed that Saleh has not yet regained his position as speaker in order to hold talks with any official figure.

A spokesman for the High Council of State also denied that Mishri had traveled to Morocco to meet with Saleh.

Separately, head of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah met with Qatar's Ambassador to Libya, Khaled al-Dosari, in Tripoli.

The envoy stressed his country's keenness on developing ties with Libya and activating bilateral agreements.
