The Address | Benghazi – Libya
NEW YORK – The United Nations Security Council adopted on Monday a resolution which extends the mandate of the UN panel of experts in Libya. Thirteen countries voted in favor of the resolution while two abstained from voting.
The resolution included an extension of the sanctions measures on oil smuggling until 20 February 2020, and expanded the designation criteria to include sexual violence among the crimes to be monitored.
Most representatives welcomed the adoption of the resolution during their speeches and expressed their commitment to achieve stability and security in Libya. They also renewed their support for Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Ghassan Salamé, whom on Thursday will brief the Security Council on the situation on Libya, according to a tweet by UNSMIL.
