Libya – United Nations – Appointment of the new special representative of the UN secretary-general for Libya (November 4, 2015)


France welcomes the appointment of Martin Kobler as Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Libya.

We reaffirm our support for the UN’s mediation efforts in Libya and support Martin Kobler’s action. We pay tribute to his predecessor Bernardino Leon, who spared no effort to promote inter-Libyan dialogue. He helped to establish the elements of an agreement and a national unity government.

France calls on the Libyan parties to sign the agreement and to form a national unity government as swiftly as possible.
