(Reuters) - Libya talks in Geneva ended on Thursday without making enough progress to move towards elections, the United Nations Libya adviser Stephanie Williams said in a statement.

"Disagreement persists on the eligibility requirements for the candidates in the first presidential elections," Williams said, adding that she would make recommendations on alternative ways forward.
