UNITED NATIONS, March 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The United Nations Security Council has extended for another year - until March 15, 2015 - the term of powers of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL). A relevant resolution was adopted by Security Council members unanimously on Friday.
UNSMIL should render support to the Libyan authorities in ensuring “the transition to democracy, including by assisting a single, inclusive and transparent national dialogue, to Libyan electoral processes and to the process of preparing, drafting and adopting a new constitution.”
The mission is also called upon to help Libya reinforce state power and establish supremacy of law, as well as armament control.
In the resolution, the UN also expressed concern over the situation in Libya, including violent clashes between armed groups.
The Council also extended until April 13, 2015 the mandate of its Panel of Experts monitoring implementation of sanctions against the North African country.
The panel’s head, Ambassador Eugиne-Richard Gasana of Rwanda, recently said the chaos in the country since the 2011 toppling of Muammar Gaddafi turned Libya into a key source of illicit weapons.
