Il responsabile della missione di supporto delle Nazioni Unite in Libia (UNSMIL), Tarek Mitri, ha dichiarato in una conferenza stampa organizzata ieri che il Consiglio di sicurezza delle Nazioni Unite é profondamente turbato dalla diffusione di armi nel paese e ha invitato al dialogo nazionale per risolvere i problemi attuali legati alla sicurezza. Mitri ha detto ai giornalisti che, mentre l’Onu é preoccupata per il deterioramento della sicurezza nel paese e per la proliferazione delle armi, il Consiglio di Sicurezza anche riconosciuto la speranza che la stabilità venga al più presto ripristinata.
The UNSMIL head stressed the UN’s desire to see “a transformation of the current political crisis and security instability into an opportunity that would allow Libya to proceed with its transition towards state building, establishing the rule of law, ensuring stability, promoting human rights and addressing livelihood issues”.
In a statement made by the French President of the Security Council, also yesterday, the Security Council expressed its concern at the use of violence by armed groups against Libyan state institutions, including the illegal seizure of energy facilities and smuggling of natural resources, urging the the transfer of such facilities back to proper authorities.
Oil exports have been crippled in the country since July when a number of minority groups with different vested interests began blockading oil and gas facilities and infrastructure. While the UN has said that dialogue is necessary between all different forces in Libya, without exception, Mitri told the press conference yesterday that the UN refused to enter into discussions with groups illegally occupying oil fields or oil terminals.
Mitri added that the work of the UN in Libya was limited to helping bring disparate groups together and its role did not exceed providing assistance and advice to Libyans.
