UN Special Adviser on Libya, Stephanie Williams, said Wednesday she discussed in Tripoli with Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Committee (DDR) on its plans to reintegrate armed formations on individual basis in state institutions.
“Met yesterday with the 410 DDR Committee at Tripoli’s Abou Setta Naval Base. I was briefed by the Committee’s Head Major General Mahmoud Ben Yezza on the work of the committee and its plans to re-integrate armed formations and supporting forces, on an individual basis across the country, in State institutions as well as in the private sector,” Williams tweeted.
“They assured me that Libya is able to accommodate all individuals under the DDR program but this requires stability and an end to foreign interference,” she pointed out.
“We also discussed ways in which UN can support the Committee’s work, including through sharing experiences of other countries,” she added.
