Guterres: Ceasefire Monitors to Arrive in Libya Soon


On Wednesday, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, said that the first team of United Nations observers will be deployed in Tripoli soon.

Guterres stressed that the United Nations is committed to supporting the Libyan ceasefire monitoring mechanism, calling for the need to put an end to all foreign interference, as well as the complete withdrawal of all foreign forces and mercenaries from Libya.

Guterres added in his speech at the Berlin II Conference, that the full implementation of the ceasefire agreement is of paramount importance to the consolidation of peace in Libya.

The Secretary-General also commended the efforts of the Joint Military Commission (5+5), for working together to achieve a permanent ceasefire, and for the two sides’ continued investment in confidence-building measures. He also urged the Libyan and foreign parties to agree on a comprehensive plan with clear timetables to achieve this goal.
