Kobler in Paris: Libya is progressing toward stability
United Nations delegate to Libya, Martin Kobler, said Libya is making “important progress” in that its unity government has now secured control over the central bank and the national oil company.
Rebuilding the authority of the Libyan government is key to defeating ISIS, though that will necessarily require military force, Kobler said at a briefing in Paris.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said a key challenge for Libya is rebuilding its army.
