UN Security Council signals support for Libyan interim Government of National Unity

Minister for the Middle East and North Africa James Cleverly said:

The UN Security Council’s adoption of this UK-drafted resolution sends a clear signal of support for the interim Government of National Unity and reinforces the need for them to facilitate elections on 24 December.

It also makes clear the need for all foreign forces and mercenaries to withdraw without delay in line with the Ceasefire Agreement.

We now expect all UN members to act on that, helping Libya to regain its sovereignty and work towards lasting peace and stability. The UK will continue to support Libya on that journey.
