Stephanie Williams, the U.N. Advisor on Libya, inaugurated on Sunday morning the third and final round of negotiations between the House of Representative and High Council of State in Cairo.
In her opening speech before the Libyan interlocutors, Williams pointed out that “this should be the final round that is expected to result in a sound, constitutional framework to enable the holding of elections.”
“There are key articles that are still pending to be agreed on. In this round, you still have important issues to resolve,” added the U.N. diplomat. “We hope and expect that you will maintain the sense of responsibility and the spirit of compromise to be able to reach consensus, by upholding the interests of your country over anything else, which paves the way to restore the popular legitimacy to all Libyan institutions.”
Williams also had a word of warning to “the spoilers and those who look to disrupt this delicate political process through the use of force”
“You must stop, you must put down your weapons, you must stop terrorizing the civilian population. Enough is enough,” she said.
