The governments of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States welcome the Libyan Political Political Forum (LPDF) agreement on an electoral system for the interim government that will lead Libya to national elections on 24 December 2021. This is an important step towards the unity of Libya. The LPDF decision underscores the clear demands of the Libyan people to change the status quo. We encourage all Libyan parties to quickly and constructively complete the process of nominating a unified and inclusive government through the LPDF. As a partner in the process of the Berlin Libya Conference and as an international partner for Libya, we will fully support the LPFF’s efforts.
We also welcome the appointment of Jan Kubis as Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General to Libya, as well as the appointment of Raisen Zenega as UCSMIL Coordinator and Georgette Gagnon as Resident Coordinator and Human Rights Coordinator . We will fully support all three in their important work. We would like to thank again the Special Envoy of the United Nations, Stephanie Williams, for continuing the UN arbitration process until JAN Kubiš takes up his post.
One year after the Berlin Conference on Libya, we underline the important role of the international community in supporting a political solution in Libya. We remind our partners and members of the Berlin Process once again to honor the commitments made at the Summit a year ago, which were supported by Resolution 2510 of the UN Security Council. In particular, we must continue to support the ceasefire, ensure full compliance with the arms and end harmful interference from outside, the sovereignty of all Libyans and their future free and peaceful development through nationwide elections Reduces the desire to restore. It is significant that all Libyan and international actors have supported steps for full implementation of the ceasefire agreement for Libya on 23 October last year, including the immediate opening of the coastal road and the withdrawal of all foreign fighters and mercenaries.
