Comment by the Information and Press Department on the signing of the intra-Libyan agreement


  • en-GB1 ru-RU1

Moscow welcomes the December 17 signing of an intra-Libyan political agreement providing for the establishment of a Presidential Council, a national unity government, and other unified bodies. We believe this agreement, signed in the Moroccan city of Skhirat with active assistance from the United Nations, will be a starting point for the revival of Libyan statehood.

We appreciate the level of civil responsibility shown by the Libyan parliamentarians, politicians, and representatives of public organisations of that country, who signed the document. We urge those Libyan politicians who remain in doubt or have not yet decided on their approach to make the right decision and join the agreement, especially because the possibility is still open.

We consider it important for all of Libyan society to give the new authorities its support. This would enable the newly created government agencies to deal with urgent tasks effectively, particularly in ensuring security and law and order around the country and promoting Libya’s economic recovery. This type of government, confidently relying on the general population, on all the political forces and tribal groups, should receive recognition and assistance from the international community.

We are interested in Libya’s development as a stable democratic state based on smoothly functioning government institutions, including the military and law enforcement. This would meet not only the Libyan people’s aspirations, but also the interests of the Middle East and North Africa as a region, and those of the international community.
