Libya: Italy expresses its firm support to Acting SRSG Williams’s appeal for a humanitarian truce

On the occasion of the beginning of Ramadan, the holy month for Islamic communities around the world, Italy expresses its firm support to the appeal launched by the Acting Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General, Stephanie Williams, for a humanitarian truce in Libya. Italy hopes that all Countries and International Organizations which participate in the Berlin Process will publicly associate themselves with this appeal, as a first step towards a real and lasting ceasefire.

While fighting has unfortunately intensified in recent weeks, the Ramadan holiday represents an opportunity to silence the weapons – as already happened, albeit briefly, in August 2019 during the Eid el Adha festivity – to face the Covid-19 emergency, resume the path of political dialogue and try to alleviate the difficulties and sufferings of the most vulnerable people in Libya, including IDPs, migrants and asylum seekers.
