The Libyan interim government in Benghazi has welcomed the European Union’s Operation IRINI to monitor the implementation of the UN Security Council’s resolution on arms embargo on Libya.

In a statement on Sunday, a copy of which was obtained by Agenzia Nova, the Foreign Ministry of the interim government said that it “appreciates the efforts made by the European Union to implement Security Council resolutions on the arms embargo on Libya,” adding that “there are countries, especially Turkey, that are still in breach of arms embargo resolutions.”

The Foreign Ministry also called on activating the Security Council resolutions on preventing human trafficking and exploitation, noting that it “will follow up with the active states on international resolutions issued regarding imposing sanctions on individuals and entities supporting terrorism.”

The Foreign Ministry also indicated that it would continue its efforts “to condemn and stop Turkish interference in Libya.”
