PARIS – France congratulated on Saturday Libyan negotiators and the United Nations on the recent progress made in Libya’s peace dialogue, warning that it will take actions against whomever obstructs this progress.
A committee advising a UN-brokered Libyan political forum ended Saturday with the acting special envoy saying a new phase to elect presidential candidates will begin in a virtual process Monday by choosing a temporary executive.
Stephanie Williams said at a news conference in Geneva that the body will call upon the political dialogue members to vote on the proposed mechanism, noting that a recent reduction in conflict helped the peace process.
