Tripoli, 19 January 2016:
Remarkably little detail has emerged from a Rome conference today at which senior officials from . . .[restrict]a range of countries were joined by Libyan officials to discuss how the international community could support the new Government of National Accord
The gathering was hosted by the Italian foreign ministry in conjunction with UNSMIL, whose chief Martin Kobler was there. However UNSMIL did not respond to a Libya Herald request for a list of attendees and no communique was issued immediately after the meeting broke up.
The only source of information came from Kobler himself who Tweeted throughout the day. He said that he has suggested that there should be regular ceasefires to enable aid to be delivered to suffering people. He also put up a post saying that the representatives of the international community had agreed completely that they should support the Libyan Political Agreement and the need to press on with the approval of the new government by the House of Representatives. He finished off by writing that there had been good discussions with ambassadors on the political, humanitarian and security situations.
It was also clear from his messages that Kobler worked the corridors talking to several delegations. These included the Egyptians, whose role he said was very important, the Turks, Italians and French. [/restrict]
