UNSC adopts draft resolution to appoint Libya Special Envoy without delay

The members of the UN Security Council on Tuesday (local time) adopted a resolution requesting to urgently appoint a new Special Envoy for Libya and establish a coordinator who would be supervising the UN Support Mission in Libya's (UNSMIL) day-to-day activities.

According to the voting result, the resolution received 13 votes in favour and two abstentions from China and Russia.

The resolution, sponsored by the United Kingdom, "decides that UNSMIL should be led by a Special Envoy of the Secretary-General who should exercise overall leadership of UNSMIL... an UNSMIL Coordinator shall be in charge of UNSMIL's day-to-day operations and management and requests that the Secretary-General appoint his Special Envoy without delay."

The resolution also extends the mandate of the UNSMIL until September 15 in 2021.

Former UN Special Envoy for Libya and head of UNSMIL Ghassan Salame resigned in March, citing health reasons for his decision. Following his resignation, US diplomat Stephe Williams was appointed in July to serve as an Acting Libya Special Envoy. (/Sputnik)
