UN commented on the statement of Haftar

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Libyan political agreement remains the only recognized international community. This was stated on Tuesday, April 28, the official representative of the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric.

“For us, the Libyan political agreement, the institutions that stemmed from this agreement, remain the only internationally recognized governance framework in Libya. And this is consistent with Security Council resolutions, ”he said during a briefing. According to Dujarric, the UN will maintain this position.

On the eve of the Libyan National Army Commander-in-Chief Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar announced the transfer of power in the country to the military.

During the appeal, he said that Libyan citizens responded to his call to break the agreement reached in 2015 in Shirat on the formation of the Government of National Accord (PNS). According to the commander in chief, this arrangement split the country.

After the overthrow and assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, armed conflicts between various factions do not stop in Libya. Dual power was established in the country. In 2015, in the city of Shirat, during the inter-Libyan negotiations, with the consent of the UN, a decision was reached to create a PNS.

However, in the city of Tobruk, the parliament elected by the Libyans remained.

On April 4 last year, Haftar announced the start of an offensive on Tripoli “to liberate itself from terrorists.”
