Martin Kobler Strongly Condemns Attacks on Oil Terminals:
Every Wasted Day in Failure to Implement the Agreement is Gain for Daesh
05 January 2016 - The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya and head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Martin Kobler, strongly condemns the attack by so-called Islamic State (Daesh) on Sidra and Ras Lanouf oil terminals.
SRSG Kobler said: “These oil resources are property of the Libyan people and future generations, Libyan parties must spare no effort to block any attempt by Daesh to finance its terrorist agenda through seizure of Libyan oil. This attack serves as a strong reminder to all Libyans of the need to immediately implement the Libyan Political Agreement and form the Government of National Accord.”
The Special Representatives calls on all Libyans to unite behind the Government of National Accord (GNA) so that together they can eliminate the threat of Daesh. “Every wasted day in failure to implement the Libyan Political Agreement is a day of gain for Daesh,” SRSG Kobler said. He welcomes the statement issued yesterday by the Presidency Council of the GNA condemning the attack.
