Wednesday، 30 September 2020 - 09:01 PM

Participants in the face-to-face security and military talks between delegations ‎representing the Government of National Accord and the Libyan Arab Armed ‎Forces recommended speeding up the holding of the direct 5+5 Joint Military ‎Committee (JMC) meetings in the coming week.‎

This came in a statement issued in the conclusion of the two-day direct security ‎and military talks between the two delegations, hosted by the Red Sea resort of ‎Hurghada and sponsored by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).‎

The participants agreed on the immediate release of all those detained on account ‎of their identity and without pre-conditions or restrictions; take immediate ‎measures to exchange, by the end of October, all those detained during military ‎operations through the formation of specialized committees from the relevant ‎parties, the UNSMIL said in a statement on its official website.‎

They also agreed on halting all hatred speech campaigns and replacing them with ‎a discourse that promotes tolerance and reconciliation, and rejection of violence ‎and terrorism.‎ ‎ ‎
They recommended expediting the re-opening of air traffic and land ‎transportation lines across all Libyan cities to ensure freedom of movement for all ‎citizens.‎

The participants reviewed the security arrangements, which will be determined at ‎a later stage within the framework of the 5+5 Joint Military Committee (JMC) ‎talks.

They agreed on referring the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) tasks and ‎responsibilities to the 5+5 JMC and requesting that it prioritizes this issue, ‎provide a comprehensive assessment of the situation and take the measures ‎required to ensure regular oil and gas production and export.‎

UNSMIL expressed its sincere gratitude to the Government of Egypt for its efforts ‎in facilitating this important round of Libyan talks.‎

The Mission equally appreciates the efforts of both delegations and welcomes the ‎outcomes reached during the discussion.

UNSMIL hopes that this positive ‎development will contribute to paving the way towards a final and lasting ‎ceasefire agreement.‎
