Libya: Mr Di Maio in UN Security Council

Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio participated yesterday afternoon in the United Nations Security Council Session on Libya in videoconference, organised by the German Presidency, in a format extended to all the countries participating in the Berlin Conference.

The meeting, which was chaired by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and was attended by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, was a fruitful occasion to confirm the International Community’s support for the United Nations’ efforts to achieve a cessation of hostilities and promote peace and security in Libya.

Minister Di Maio reaffirmed Italy’s strong support for the Berlin Process along four priority lines of action: an end to all external interference in violation of the UN embargo; the achievement of an agreement on the effective ceasefire; the revitalization without further delay of the political dialogue in favour of a fully inclusive solution; and the timely resumption of oil production.

With a view to reinvigorating the UN’s mediating action in the country, Minister Di Maio finally underlined the urgency of appointing a new UN Special Representative for Libya as soon as possible.
