Statement on Libya

Meeting of the SI Presidium and Heads of State & Government, United Nations, New York, 27 September 2018

The Presidium of the Socialist International learned with great concern of the recent violations of the ceasefire agreement in Libya, signed by armed groups in Tripoli on 4 September under the auspices of the United Nations. The Presidium fully supports and encourages the efforts of the United Nations to ensure that this agreement is respected. The development of an inclusive political process leading to the establishment of new, legitimate institutions through the adoption of a constitution and to the holding of credible, transparent elections, would free the Libyan people from the cycle of violence they have been suffering and would contribute to peace and progress in the whole region.
