The UN Security Council reaffirmed Monday the call on all Libyan parties to commit to a ceasefire and rapidly to return to a UN-mediated political process.

In a statement, the Members of the Security Council welcomed and expressed full support for the call of the Special Representative, during his briefing of 29 July 2019, for a truce between the parties to be declared for Eid al-Adha.

“This truce should be accompanied by confidence-building measures between the parties.” The statement added.

The Security Council also reaffirmed full support for the Special Representative’s leadership.

“Lasting peace and stability in Libya, including an end to the worsening humanitarian crisis, will come only through a political solution.” The statement explained.

The Security Council reinforced the importance of the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Libya.
