HoR Speaker slams at Martin Kobler, urges UN to replace him


UN Special Envoy for Libya Martin Kobler is unable to do good for Libya and should be replaced if he does not change his approach, Aqilah Saleh,the Speaker of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

Saleh added that the House of Representatives is drafting a letter to the United Nations asking to appoint another special envoy for Libya if Kobler does not change his style of mediation of the national reconciliation.

“This man intervenes in everything, but he will be incapable to do any good for Libya,” Saleh said.

Kobler was appointed to the post of the UN special envoy to Libya in November 2015.
