Mr. Guterres made the appeal to the Paris Conference on Libya, convened on Friday by French President Emmanuel Macron. Some 30 countries and organizations are attending, according to media reports.
The UN chief said, the overriding goal of the conference is to seize this moment for peace. The UN chief further added most Libyans support the 24 December elections, which are being held in line with a political roadmap adopted last year following a historic ceasefire between the country’s two rival administrations. Mr. Guterres said, “Libya today is closer than it has been for many years to solving its internal crisis and breaking the cycle of political transitions. We cannot miss this opportunity.”
