Security Council to renew UNSMIL’s mandate for one more year on October 30

The Security Council is expected to vote next Monday on a draft resolution renewing the mandate of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) for one year, until 31 October 2024, Security Council Report website said on Friday.

The website added that the draft blue text maintains UNSMIL’s core mandated tasks, as set out in resolution 2542 of 15 September 2020 and paragraph 16 of resolution 2570 of 16 April 2021.

The website indicated that the negotiations were generally smooth, saying that the UK, the penholder on Libya, circulated an initial draft text on 17 October and convened one round of negotiations on 19 October.

“The penholder then circulated a revised draft and invited comments until Monday (23 October). On Tuesday (24 October), a second revised draft was circulated and placed under silence procedure until Wednesday (25 October). Silence was broken by Brazil, China, France, and Russia. The penholder then put a third revised draft under silence procedure until yesterday (26 October). The draft passed silence and was subsequently put in blue.” The website added.
