He added that the UNSMIL talked to the media outlets and explained what is right, then they actually corrected the statements, pointing out that Kobler did not mean under any circumstances to give a conditioned time for the HoR to vote for the GNA.

The spokesman stressed that the UNSMIL fully respects the sovereignty of Libya and its state institutions.
