United Nations Libya envoy pressed the UN Security Council on Thursday to blacklist anyone who obstructs peace efforts after the warring parties agreed a ceasefire and Libyan participants in political talks set a date for elections.
”This council has tools at its disposal including to prevent obstructionists from jeopardizing this rare opportunity to restore peace in Libya. I call on you to use them,” acting UN Libya envoy Stephanie Williams told the council.
The 15-member Security Council is able to impose an asset freeze or travel ban on individuals or entities.
Last month the two major sides agreed to a ceasefire and Libyan participants in political talks last week set Dec. 24, 2021 as the date for election.
