Libya's U.N.-backed unity government held meetings at a heavily guarded naval base in Tripoli Thursday and a senior military official said it was working to secure state institutions in the capital.The U.N. Security Council said Thursday it was ready to consider changes to sanctions on Libya's sovereign wealth fund once a unity government confirms it has control of it, along with the National Oil Corporation and the central bank.They have recognized it as Libya's sole legitimate government and called for a rapid transfer of power, but both the National Salvation government and a rival administration in the east have rejected this.Tripoli is home to a complex web of armed groups, some of which brought the National Salvation government to power in 2014 .
