Le Drian to chair Security Council meeting on Libya this Thursday

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will chair a ministerial-level meeting on Thursday at the United Nations Security Council, which will be dedicated to the situation in Libya, according to a statement by the French foreign ministry.

It is noteworthy that France chairs the Security Council presidency for the month of July.

Nicolas de Rivière, the French ambassador to the U.N., told reporters in early July that the Security Council meeting on Libya in the middle of the month will discuss the implementation of its resolutions on Libya, including monitoring the ceasefire, the withdrawal of foreign forces and mercenaries and preparations for general elections in December.
