Statement by the United Nations Mission of Support in Libya

UNSMIL reminds all stakeholders in Libya of the importance of respecting the date of the December 24 elections set by the LPDF roadmap

TRIPOLI, Libya, October 11, 2021 / APO Group / –

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) received a statement entitled “Statement by Barqa Officials in the Government of National Unity”, released today following a meeting in Benghazi.

The Mission takes note of the problems set out in the declaration and calls on the Government of National Unity to resolve them without delay. The Mission calls on all parties in Libya to engage in direct and constructive dialogue to resolve any concerns that arise and to continue to adhere to the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) road map.

UNSMIL urges all parties to avoid escalation and to refrain from any action that could threaten the unity of the country and its institutions and the well-being of the Libyan people; constitute a threat to national or international peace and security; and could directly or indirectly obstruct the holding of elections on December 24, 2021. The Mission recalls the respective resolutions of the UN Security Council which envisage possible measures against individuals or entities which hinder the success of the political transition in Libya.

UNSMIL urges the parties in Libya to work together in a spirit of compromise, mutual acceptance and fairness, with the aim of addressing grievances and concerns through negotiation while bringing unity and stability to the country and the interests of the Libyan people come first.

UNSMIL reminds all relevant actors in Libya of the importance of respecting the date of the December 24 elections set by the LPDF roadmap and approved by the United Nations Security Council in its resolution 2570 (2021), in order to to realize the aspiration of the Libyan people to elect their democratically, thus creating new institutions and authorities endowed with a strong popular mandate and legitimacy. The current status quo is not only unsustainable, but leads to instability and division.
