At the meeting, Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Stephanie Williams expressed concern about the breach of the temporary ceasefire immediately after it was reached on March 21.

Addressing the meeting, Head of Vietnam’s permanent mission to the UN, Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy reiterated Vietnam’s support of the political solution led and owned by the Libyans.

 

He also called for pushing forward political, economic and military dialogue channels in accordance with the UNSC’s Resolution 2510 that endorsed the conclusions of the Berlin Conference on Libya, and for the UNSMIL and regional organisations to consider assisting concerned parties in conducting dialogue via online channel.

Following the meeting, the UNSC released a press statement, expressing concern about the possible impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Libya and calling on concerned parties in Libya immediately end clashes and abide to the arms embargo.
