Written by on November 9, 2020

THE INTERIM HEAD OF THE UN’S LIBYA MISSION VOICED OPTIMISM AHEAD OF TALKS AIMED AT PREPARING FOR ELECTIONS IN THE WAR-TORN NORTH AFRICAN COUNTRY.

THE UNSMIL-LED DIALOGUE, SET TO OPEN ON MONDAY IN THE CAPITAL OF NEIGHBOURING TUNISIA, FOLLOWS MONTHS OF RELATIVE CALM IN LIBYA, WHICH TUMBLED INTO CHAOS FOLLOWING THE TOPPLING OF LONGTIME LEADER MUAMMAR GADDAFI IN 2011.

LAST MONTH THE TWO MAIN SIDES IN THE COMPLEX CONFLICT SIGNED A LANDMARK CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT, OPENING THE WAY TO A RESUMPTION OF ECONOMICALLY VITAL OIL PRODUCTION AND PROGRESS ON EFFORTS TO END YEARS OF POLITICAL DEADLOCK.
