Guterres proposes dispatching monitoring mission to oversee Libya’s ceasefire

The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, has urged for an international monitoring mechanism of Libya’s ceasefire, adding in a report to the Security Council that this mechanism could achieve consolidation of the truce in the country.

Guterres said the Libyan 5+5 Joint Military Commission agreed on the ceasefire last October and urged the Security Council for supporting it with a UN-supervised monitoring mission of unarmed personnel.

Guterres also mentioned in his report that the proposed mechanism will include supervisors from the African Union, European Union and the Arab League.

“The monitoring mission should help Libyan parties consolidate the ceasefire, withdraw foreign mercenaries and clear mines and explosives,” he explained, saying those issues are the main three points included in the ceasefire agreement to be done in three months since signing in last October, yet he said: “They haven’t been activated”.
