In particular he underscored the urgent need to unify the country's security apparatus and that the fact that united Libyan security apparatus is vital for peace and prosperity was well understood by the stakeholders.
He also informed the meeting of efforts by Libya's neighbours as well as the African Union to help find a solution there. Speaking of the importance of cooperation, he said: “[The] collaborative approach where all initiatives work in a complementary manner to advance the UN-facilitated political process is very much needed.”
Also at today's meeting, in his capacity as the Chair of the Committee established pursuant to Security Council Resolution 1976 (2011), Ambassador Olof Skoog, the Permanent Representative of Sweden to the United Nations, briefed the Council on the work of the Committee from 20 April to 7 June.
In particular, he spoke of the information it received from the Panel of Experts on its final report under Council resolution 2278 (2016) on issues including the arms embargo, assets freeze, travel ban and illicit trade in petroleum products, imposed upon certain actors in Libya.
The Committee is in the process of concluding its consideration of the recommendations, the Ambassador added.
