Statement by SRSG Martin Kobler - 16 December 2015
16 December 2015 – The signing of the Libyan Political Agreement is due to take place tomorrow, 17 December 2015 as agreed to by the Libyan political dialogue and as welcomed by the United Nations Security Council and by the ministerial meeting in Rome on 13 December. The signing ceremony has been scheduled for 17 December and a large number of Libyan participants and high-level international participants, including many foreign Ministers, have committed to attend. I am grateful to the Kingdom of Morocco for hosting this event in Skhirat.
I take note of the meeting between President of the House of Representatives Mr. Agila Saleh Essa Gwaider and President of the General National Congress Mr. Nouri Abusahmain in Malta on 15 December 2015.
The United Nations encourages all Libyan efforts to end the current divisions through inclusive dialogue, and I will continue to actively engage with all Libyans to that end.
