US Ambassador To UN Says Foreign Actors Must Stop Fuelling the Libyan Conflict


The United States’ Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Kelly Craft, said that “external factors must stop fueling the Libyan conflict in order to facilitate a political solution to the ongoing crisis”.

In a UN Security Council briefing regarding the cooperation between the UN and the EU, Craft said that “all UN Member States must comply with the arms embargo, including by ceasing all support for Libyan factions and withdrawing all mercenary personnel”.

“Bringing stability to Libya will require a sustained effort by the UN and steadfast support from the United States and EU. We value the EU’s Operation ‘IRINI’ and its contributions to implementing the arms embargo,” Kraft added.
