The United Nations Security Council called to vote on a draft resolution on Libya
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) asked on Wednesday afternoon to vote on a draft resolution in support of the ceasefire in Libya.
If the draft pass will be the first binding text adopted by the Council since the outbreak of hostilities in early April between the armed groups affiliated to the Tripoli based Government of National Accord (GNA) and the Libyan National Army (LNA) led by the field Marshall Khalifa Haftar.
The draft has been prepared by the United Kingdom on January 24 and then has been modified including the request of mercenaries withdraw from Libyan territories.
According to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, Turkey sent more than 4000 Syrian rebels and extremists from Idlib to Tripoli in the last 2 months.
A diplomatic source said that Britain asked for the vote after preparing the text, which has been in consultations for more than three weeks, and Russia’s position remains unknown after Kremlin suspended adopting the project a week ago, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Violent clashes started on April 4, 2019 between Tripoli’s militias and the LNA and the UNSC has already met 15 times without reaching a common international position or any resolution on Libyan crisis.Read more about Arab News Latest, Arab Politics News.
