OFFICIAL STATEMENT 130
Attack against a United Nations convoy in Benghazi

​Spain strongly condemns the attack perpetrated today in Benghazi, against a convoy of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya. This despicable attack, carried out on the eve of the Islamic holiday of Eid Al-Adha, caused the death of three members of the Mission and several wounded

11/08/2019

The Spanish Government would like to send its most sincere condolences to the families and close friends of the deceased, as well as to the United Nations Organisation and its Support Mission in Libya, and wishes the wounded a speedy recovery.

Spain is committed to the efforts of the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General, Ghassan Salamé, in the search for a political solution to the crisis in Libya and wishes to reiterate its support for his proposal of humanitarian truce, ceasefire and  reactivating political dialogue

Likewise, Spain expresses its full support to the people and legitimate authorities in Libya in their efforts to fight terrorism and restore peace and security. No effort should be spared so that those responsible for this and other cowardly and execrable acts of terrorism are brought to justice.
