UN welcomes help to enforce Libya arms embargo

AFP, Geneva

The United Nations yesterday welcomed a new EU naval operation to enforce an arms embargo on Libya as the warring sides in the conflict met for military talks in Geneva.

EU foreign ministers agreed Monday to a naval mission that will be authorised to intervene to stop weapons shipments into the North African state. “Whoever can help in monitoring the arms embargo is welcome in whatever part of Libya,” UN Libya envoy Ghassan Salame told reporters.

“What is needed is that member states of the UN come to the rescue ... in monitoring the violations of the arms embargo, otherwise it will not end,” he said.

Salame said the embargo was being violated by air, land and sea, pointing to Libya’s large and porous border.

States including Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt support Haftar, while the UN-recognised government led by Fayez al-Sarraj is backed by Turkey and Qatar.
