Tripoli November 21, 2020 (Lana) - Acting Special Representative
of the Secretary-General for Libya, Stephanie Williams, sent a letter
to the Libyan leaders and the Libyan people, calling on them not to
allow "those who insist and fight by all means to keep the situation
as it is, to mislead you with news and campaigns fabricated and steal
this opportunity from you. "
This came in an exclusive interview with the United Nations News
website, in which she touched on the ceasefire agreement, the launch
of the Libyan political forum, the upcoming elections, the role of
women, oil and foreign interference, among other things.
In this dialogue, which was conducted via remote communication
technology, Williams noted in particular the role of the women's
group that participated in the forum, noting the importance of the
role of women in building and making peace.
"They do deserve their weight in gold when it comes to being at the
negotiating table," she said.
She also drew attention to the changing attitude of men towards the
participation of women in the dialogue, explaining that "men have
begun to appreciate that as well, and recognized that women can be
very effective in making peace."
The Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Libya
also addressed Libyan oil and its impact on the country's economy,
referring to her recent meeting with the Sirt Oil and Gas Production
and Processing Company in Marsa Brega, which included the head of the
National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanaallah, and the commander of the
petroleum facilities guard.
She also touched on foreign interference in Libya, stressing the
importance of respecting the arms embargo.
