The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – The United Nations Envoy for Libya, Ghassan Salamé, announced that he would ask the Security Council to introduce changes to the plan of action to end the conflict in the country. He did so in an interview broadcast yesterday to “218News” satellite TV, without specifying the nature of these changes.
Salamé also added, “I’m not fond of the Skhirat agreement, but I do not want a situation of emptiness in Libya.”
The Plan – which provides, among other things, for amending the Libyan Political Agreement, organizing a National Conference, preparing for elections and providing humanitarian assistance — was unveiled at an event held during the UN General Assembly’s session of September 2017.
In reference to an upcoming conference on Libya hosted by Italy in November, the UN envoy assured that “the United Nations will go to Rome if it is invited”, adding that the UN “cannot prevent any member state from proposing initiatives to resolve the Libyan crisis”.
