Kobler: The GNA must be accelerated


The United Nations special envoy to Libya, Martin Kobler, said that the situations in Libya are very bad, stressing that the endorsement of the Government of National Accord (GNA) must be accelerated.

Kobler told Alwasat website that the House of Representatives (HoR) must endorse the GNA, as soon as possible, stating that ambulances mustn’t be stopped for not having driving license. He explained that Libya is under terrorist threat, while it witnesses deterioration across social and security aspects.

He noted that the Presidential Council (PC) must be moved to Tripoli, as soon as possible, to execute a peaceful and organized handover of power, adding that this is what most Libyans want.

Kobler ruled out imposing sanctions on Libyans who hinder the political process saying that they aren’t on UN’s agenda. “I don’t give supportive or abortive recommendations about the sanctions, I only talk about what matters, which is the situation on the ground”. He explained that he only tells European ministers about the details of the Libyan situations.

Kobler discussed with the foreign ministers of the European Union his latest communications with the Libyan rivals and efforts to put the GNA in place.
