UN urges for solution to Tripoli mayhem as militias try to topple GNA


The Head of the UNSMIL and the UN delegate to Libya, Martin Kobler, called all the conflicting parties and armed groups in the capital to be responsible for the safety of the people and the well-being of their country by reaching a peaceful solution for the fight for power.

On Twitter, Kobler said on Saturday that prolonged talks were held with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord, Fayez Al-Serraj, in Tripoli, discussing the necessary ways for Libya to move on.


Kobler also told Al-Serraj that the UN totally supports the GNA and Presidential Council which were brokered by the UN in Skhirat, Morocco on December 17 last year.

On Friday evening October 14, the dismissed General National Congress and its Salvation Government took the Rixos Headquarters where the UN-brokered High Council of State had been located with the help of the Presidential Guard and other armed groups.
