Leaders including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon are urging Libya's two rival governments to come together and make the final step toward a peace deal.

But talks between representatives of the two governments on the sidelines of a U.N. gathering of world leaders have not yet resulted in a signed agreement.

Ban told Friday's high-level meeting that a final draft is in the two sides' hands, and "the time for reopening the text has passed."

Kerry told the meeting that he hopes the process can be "completed in a very small number of days."

The oil-rich north African country has slid into turmoil since the 2011 overthrow and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
