The Special Representative of the Secretary-General Martin Kobler strongly welcomes the arrival in Tripoli of the Presidency Council on 30 March 2016, which marks an important step in Libya’s democratic transition and path to peace, security and prosperity.

“I commend the courage, determination and leadership of the Presidency Council under its president Fayez Serraj in moving forward with the implementation of the Libyan political agreement and the aspiration of the overwhelming majority of the Libyan people. The international community stands firmly behind them and is ready to provide the required support and assistance “, Kobler said.

“I call on the Libyan people to extend to the Presidency Council and the Government of National Accord their full support and cooperation “, he added.

Echoing the 10 March statement of the Libyan political dialogue, the Special Representative urged all public bodies, including official financial institutions, to facilitate an immediate, orderly and peaceful handover of power.

The Special Representative stresses that all security actors have a responsibility to ensure the safety and security of the Presidency Council and of the Government of National Accord, and should refrain from any action that can undermine this crucial phase of Libya’s transition.
