The special envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General to Libya and the Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Jan Kubis, arrived in Tripoli on Monday in his first visit to the country after his appointment.
In his first talks with Libyan officials, Kubis held separate meetings with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohamed Siyala, the Vice President of the Presidential Council, Ahmed Maitiq, a member of the Presidential Council, Abdul-Salam Kagman, and the Minister of Interior, Fathi Bashagha, who congratulated Kubis on his appointment and expressed their full support for the special envoy in his mission as well as for the work of the United Nations.
The meetings focused on a wide range of issues, including national and international dynamics, in light of the fruitful results achieved by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum held recently in Switzerland, which resulted in the selection of a new interim executive authority.
Kubis reiterated the United Nations’ full support for the Libyan people in their endeavor to achieve peace, stability, prosperity and unity, especially through the coming elections on December 24, 2021.
Kubis also affirmed the UN’s continued support in the humanitarian level to slow the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
They also discussed the political and security situations in Libya and stressed the need to proceed with the full implementation of the ceasefire agreement through the work of the Joint Military Committee 5 + 5, as well as the implementation of the roadmap emanating from the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum.
