TSC President meets Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya

The President of the Transitional Sovereignty Council, General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, met the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Libya and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, in the presence of the Acting Foreign Minister, Ambassador Ali Al-Sadiq.

Bathily said in a press statement that his visit to Sudan comes within the framework of the United Nations’ efforts to resolve the Libyan crisis, noting that the visit also comes in the wake of the implementation of the ceasefire agreement currently in effect, which was recently signed in Libya.

He added that there is an urgent need to unify the Libyan military and security institutions in order to establish peace and stability, indicating that this process requires the concerted efforts of Libya’s neighboring countries such as Sudan, Chad and Niger, especially with regard to the evacuation of foreign armed movements and foreign fighters from Libyan territory.

He said that the UN mission is looking forward to the cooperation of Libya’s neighboring countries in order to help address the situation in this country, given that stability in it represents an extension of stability to all neighboring countries, lauding Sudan’s support for these international efforts to solve the Libyan crisis.

He expressed his thanks and appreciation to the President of the Sovereignty Council and the Sudanese authorities for supporting the efforts of a peaceful solution in Libya, calling on the neighboring countries of Libya to make collective efforts to monitor and secure its borders so that it would not be a haven for outlaw groups, terrorist groups and illegal immigration, in order to enhance peace and stability in the region.
