France ready to take action against those who obstruct Libya’s peace dialogue

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.

“France congratulates LPDF advisory committee and [UNSMIL] for these positive results,” the French Embassy in Libya tweeted on Saturday, adding that it calls on “all the LPDF to allow the election of a new unified executive to Libya lead to elections on December 24th.”
“Ready to take measures against those who obstruct LPDF. No to status quo,” the French Embassy concluded.
