Libyan Political Dialogue Participants Agree in Principle to Move Dialogue to Libya
29 January 2015 - Participants in the UN-facilitated Libyan political dialogue have discussed during their meeting in Geneva this week the venue for holding the future talks.
There was agreement on the principle of convening future dialogue sessions in Libya, provided that logistical and security conditions are available.
UNSMIL calls on all stakeholders to join the talks in an open and constructive spirit.
Participants expressed concern about the prevailing security conditions in different areas, condemning in particular the recent attack in Tripoli that took place as they were meeting at the United Nations Office at Geneva. At the same time, they emphasized that the talks present a moment of hope and reconciliation for the Libyans, and an opportunity to resolve the country's political and security crisis that should not be missed.
The participants deferred it to the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to start consultations with the parties on the venue of the political dialogue.
