Libyan UN ambassador withholds west military intervention
The Libyan UN ambassador, Ebrahim Dabbashi said Wednesday Libya will hold off asking nations like the United States and Britain to intervene with air strikes against the growing presence of IS as a new national unity government tries to establish itself.
Ambassador Ebrahim Dabbashi said he would rather see a UN arms embargo loosened so Libya can defend itself against IS instead. He spoke shortly before the Security Council unanimously endorsed a UN-brokered deal that formed Serraj unity government that Libya’s rival factions signed last week.
