Bathily resigns as UN envoy to Libya

Abdoulaye Bathily, the United Nations envoy for Libya has resigned. Bathily held the post for 18 months. He submitted his resignation Tuesday.

Bathily said that while under his direction, the UN Support Mission in Libya, had “made a lot of efforts,” but there was a “lack of political will and good faith” efforts by the Libyan leaders.

Bathily said there was no room for the international alliance to “operate successfully” in Libya.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres accepted Bathily’s resignation. Guterres said he was grateful for Bathily’s “tireless efforts to restore peace and stability to Libya,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric explained.
