Tripoli, 6 January 2021 (Lana) The UN Secretary General, Antonio
Guterres has called for dispatching an advance team to monitor
cease-fire in Libya, as a first step to provide the foundations for
international monitoring mechanism to be based in Serte. He cautioned
that current delay in implementing a cease fire entails the threat of
failure in commitment to the schedule.
In a report to the UN Security Council he said the Libyan Joint
Military Committee asked for unarmed and non-regular personnel to
monitor ceasefire under UN supervision.
Guterres explained in his report that the international team of
observers would work with joint monitoring teams from east and west
of Libya and that Libyan parties rejected the deployment of any
foreign forces even if they are subordinated to the UN on Libyan
soil, according to the Associated Press.
