Agreement on ceasefire in Libya
23/10/2020
The Government of Spain welcomes the agreement on a permanent ceasefire signed today in Geneva by the Libyan participants in the Joint 5+5 Military Commission and congratulates the Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Stephanie Williams, on this important step for peace and stability in the country.

The government hopes that this agreement, which is immediately effective and is supported by a number of leading mayors, will be respected with responsibility and in good faith by all the Libyan parties and international organisations with influence in the country.

The government trusts that the measures of confidence agreed will soon also be applied by the parties, including the resumption of air and land connections throughout the country and the exchange of prisoners, and that the National Oil Corporation can return to safe production to the benefit of all Libyans.

The Government of Spain reiterates its commitment to support the Libyan authorities and the UN in its efforts to achieve a political and definitive solution to the conflict that guarantees the unity and territorial integrity of Libya. It also calls on all Libyan politicians to meet next week in Tunisia to make progress down the path of national reconciliation.
