VIENNA, May 16. /TASS/. The participants in the Vienna conference on Libya say they are ready to supply the Government of National Accord in Tripoli with weapons bypassing the current UN arms embargo, according to the communique obtained by TASS on Monday.
"The Government of National Accord (GNC) has voiced its intention to submit appropriate arms embargo exemption requests to the UN Libya Sanctions Committee to procure necessary lethal arms and materiel to counter UN-designated terrorist groups and to combat Daesh (Islamic State terrorist organization banned in Russia) throughout the country," said the communique. "We will fully support these efforts while continuing to reinforce the UN arms embargo."
The countries also stress that GNC is the only legitimate government in Libya and call on all economic institutions of the country to work under the auspices of the Government of National Accord.
The participants in the conference also say they are ready to resume work of their diplomatic missions in Tripoli soon if GNC ensures their security.
