The UN Security Council’s unanimous decision yesterday to extend the mandate of the UN Mission in Libya “demonstrates the international community’s strong support for [UN Envoy] Bathily’s efforts to further an inclusive political process leading to elections and a unified government in Libya,” said US Ambassador Richard Norland.

The United Nations Security Council is expected to vote on a draft resolution renewing the mandate of the Panel of Experts (PoE) of the 1970 Libya Sanctions Committee and the authorization of measures contained in resolution 2146 of 19 March 2014 related to the illicit export of petroleum from Libya. The draft resolution in blue also contains several new provisions concerning the arms embargo and assets freeze measures imposed by resolution 1970 of 26 February 2011 and modified by subsequent resolutions.
