Tripoli, 9 March 2015:
Following three days of dialogue in Skhirat, Morocco between representatives from the differing parties in . . .[restrict]Libya, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has urged participants to keep to the original agenda agreed upon by all parties and has called on all leaders to stop the military escalation that threatens to destroy the any political solution.
Prior to the Morocco talks, all parties had agreed upon UNSMIL’s proposal that the agenda would focus on the formation of a national consensus government and security arrangements to end the armed hostilities in Libya and allow for the withdrawal of all armed groups from towns and cities, UNSMIL said today in a statement.
It said that one party veered away from the agenda during last week’s talks, presenting its own proposal for a resolution of the Libyan crisis.
Going forward, UNSMIL has urged all participants in the dialogue process to refrain from making proposals outside the framework of these talks, as it believes that this will be key to building trust among the parties.
Furthermore, UNSMIL called on all leaders to put a stop to the military escalation during the dialogue, pointing out that any such escalation called into question the commitment to the talks of those responsible for it.
The United Nations, said it had promised to “spare no effort” in helping the Libyan people to achieve their dream of a peaceful and stable Libya, and for a modern democratic state based on respect for human rights and the law.
