Libya signs a humanitarian agreement in Rome
Libya’s Government of National Accord is willing to restore peace and stability in the country and this is clear in the signing of a humanitarian agreement on Saturday, in Rome, Italy.
The new accord brings together representatives from different ethnic and political groups from the southern part of the country and was overseen by the Catholic Community of Sant’Egidio.
The vast desert region near the border of Algeria, Niger and Chad, in southern part of Libya escapes the authority of Tripoli, even after most of the political and military leaders have pledged allegiance to the Government of the National Accord, led by Fayez al-Serraj.
The agreement will include the services of the Italian ministry of cooperation which is already providing assistance in the main cities along Libya’s coast and also those of the International Red Cross and other Non-Governmental Organizations.
