Additional UN observers will be deployed gradually with their Libyan counterparts in Sirte for monitoring ceasefire once the necessary security and logistical arrangements are in place, said Stéphane Dujarric, UN Secretary-General Spokesperson.
Dujarric expressed his hope that the international community, including the neighboring countries of Libya, will provide strong support for the implementation of the action plan approved by the Libyan 5+5 Joint Military Committee (JMC) on the withdrawal of foreign fighters and forces from Libya on October 8.
It is noteworthy that JMC Member, Al-Hadi Al-Fallah, had said the team of international observers who arrived in Libya in accordance with the Geneva Agreement is made up of 10 civilians, in charge of monitoring mercenaries’ exit from the country.
The team’s work will be to determine the locations of the mercenaries’ exit and monitor their exit according to specific percentages from both parties, ensuring that they do not return again or any party breaches its obligation to expel the mercenaries from its side, he explained.
“We determined the mechanism for the exit of mercenaries, set broad lines, and set a confirmed date,” JMC member added.
“We will hold a meeting with a number of African countries that have mercenaries in Libya to agree on precise dates, and the meeting will be within two weeks,” Al-Fallah pointed out.
