UN envoy says status quo in Libya poses threat to unity, stability

The UN envoy to Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, said on the 13th anniversary of the 17 February Revolution in Libya that it was crucial for all Libyan leaders to recognize the daily struggles faced by their fellow citizens and work toward fulfilling their aspirations.”

Bathily added in a statement published by UNSMIL that the current status quo posed a significant threat to the unity of Libya, adding that the fragility of its institutions and the deep divisions within the nation represented grave risks to its stability.

“It is imperative that Libyan leaders acknowledge their responsibility and be held accountable for their decisions and actions, as they directly impact the lives of the Libyan people. They must come together, settle all politically contentious issues, and agree on a way forward to build a strong, united, and resilient Libya. Only through good faith and compromise can they forge a path towards a better future, where freedom, democracy, and prosperity prevail.” Bathily indicated.

He said the Libyan people endured prolonged waiting and couldn’t accept any further delays in the formation of a unified government that would bring together all regions – East, West, and South – to rebuild the social fabric and economy and restore the sovereignty and dignity of the nation.
