UNSMIL hails new exchange rate approved by Libya’s Central Bank

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has applauded the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Libya for the decision taken in this morning’s long-awaited meeting to unify the exchange rate.

UNSMIL said in a statement that this CBL decision is an important and much needed step towards alleviating the suffering of the Libyan people and a good sign that this vital sovereign institution is moving towards unification. 

The Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General Stephanie Williams stressed that “Now is the moment for all Libyans — particularly the country’s political actors — to demonstrate similar courage, determination and leadership to put aside their personal interests and overcome their differences for the sake of the Libyan people in order to restore the country’s sovereignty and the democratic legitimacy of its institutions.”
