U.N. Special Envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily held a meeting on Sunday with Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, to discuss his government’s mechanisms to “ensure fair distribution of national resources, government spending and the adopted transparency and disclosure procedures,” according to statement by Bathily.
The U.N. diplomat said he raised with Dbeibeh “the growing discontent across the country about the unequal allocation of the country’s oil and gas revenues, and underscored the need for transparency and accountability to prevent further division.”
“During the meeting, I reiterated the need for an independent Libyan-owned Libyan-led mechanism to oversee the public revenue and expenditure system,” Bathily said.
