UN envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily considered the consultive meeting of Arab ministers, held in Tripoli Sunday, as “the expression of solidarity and support for the Libyan people in establishing a peaceful and prosperous future.”
“I was pleased to attend the consultative meeting of Arab Foreign Ministers today in Tripoli. I consider the meeting as the expression of solidarity and support for the Libyan people in establishing a peaceful and prosperous future,” Bathily tweeted.
It is noteworthy that the Arab League’s General Secretariat has addressed Dbeibeh’s government Foreign Ministry that its meeting held in Tripoli today for Arab foreign ministers failed to achieve quorum of 14 members according to the League’s internal regulations.
“Over a year ago, 2.8 million Libyans registered to vote. This shows the will and determination of the Libyan people to choose their representatives, restore legitimacy to their institutions and chart their way forward to stability through a democratic political process,” UN envoy pointed out.
“I called on all Libyan stakeholders to come together and find ways to overcome their differences so that Libya can – once again – play a leading role as an African-Arab country, as part of the Mediterranean, and as an active member of the United Nations family,” he added.
“I call on all international stakeholders including Libya’s neighbors to speak with one voice and step up their support to Libya to help this country to overcome its long-term crisis.”
