Security Council resolution reinforces Berlin peace process for Libya: UN envoy
The UN Security Council’s most recent resolution on Libya is a “strong message” which reinforces the peace process for the country set out at a conference in Berlin, said the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, at a press conference on Tuesday.
“The adoption by the Security Council of Resolution 2510 (2020) that gave the Berlin Conference conclusion a stamp of legitimacy that was needed in order to convey a strong message,” said Salame.
However, Salame said that the current truce had frequently been violated and referred to the attack on a Turkish ship in Tripoli’s port.
“The situation on the ground remains a situation where the truce is very fragile, is often violated, where new attacks took place, even today, in the very [sea] port of Tripoli, where incidents take place left and right,” he said.
Salame added that the the UN arms embargo continues to be violated “by air, by land, and by sea” and that it took efforts to enforce it across a country the size of Libya.
