Tunis, 29 November 2017:
Following his visit to Misrata yesterday and before that Tripoli, UNSMIL chief Ghassan Salamé arrived in Benghazi today for talks with an array of figures to press action plan and hear views on it.
“Many fail to appreciate” the groundwork that UNSMIL had been undertaking, a statement quoted him saying.
He noted that UNSMIL had been working hard to secure the right conditions for elections to take place by September 2018.
“The day for solid and final institutions to emerge in Libya is not far; it is a matter of months,” he said while addressing tribal representatives, academics and activists.
“We’re close to a stage, underpinned by a permanent constitution, general elections and comprehensive reconciliation, which are the three pillars upon which Libya’s future will be built,” he noted.
He also re-opened two primary schools in Benghazi. Unicef is funding the rehabilitation of six schools in Benghazi, which will provide education to 6,000 boys & girls with state-of-the-art systems. They are among 30 schools being rehabilitated by UNICEF in Libya.
