NATO says ready to monitor arms embargo in Libya

The Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, has expressed readiness to monitor the arms embargo in Libya.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Stoltenberg said NATO is currently part of European Union’s (EU) Operation Sophia and it can exert more efforts and provide more support in Libya upon official requests by the EU to monitor the implementation of the arms embargo in Libya.

The UN Security Council has imposed an arms embargo on Libya since February 2011 relating to the supply of arms and military equipment to and from Libya.

The embargo has been violated so many times by several member states, especially in the latest offensive of Khalifa Haftar on Tripoli, according to the UN, which named a few countries such as UAE, Egypt, and France.
