UN Secretary General: Libya’s political process is under threat

UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, has urged countries to withdraw all foreign fighters and mercenaries from Libya, saying they continue to operate throughout the conflict-stricken country in violation of last October’s ceasefire agreement with no discernible abatement of their activities.

The UN Secretary General also urged countries supplying arms and military equipment to the foreign fighters to stop violating the UN arms embargo, adding, the movement of aircraft providing logistical support also continued unabated at airbases in central Libya in the strategic city of Sirte and nearby Jufra area, where Haftar’s militias are located with their Russian Wagner Group mercenaries.

In a report to the UN Security Council circulated Friday, Guterres called for implementation of a comprehensive plan for the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all mercenaries and foreign forces from Libya, with clear timelines.

He also urged Libyan parties to exert every effort to ensure that parliamentary and presidential elections are held on December 24 in accordance with the political road map that ended hostilities last year.
