Head of the foreign policy of the EU Federica Mogherini, and the Secretary General of the Arab League, Nabil Elaraby, urged all parties to sign the agreement that was filed after negotiations with them.

A statement issued by the EU said Mogherini and Elaraby, who met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly to discuss the situation in Libya, expressed their full support for the continued work of the Special Envoy UN to Libya, Bernardino Leon.

Last week, the United Nations has given the parties of Libya a final draft of a peace agreement to end their conflict, telling the UN Working factions was over and they must take the matter or leave it.

The agreement sponsored by the UN, which came out after months of negotiations stalled, aims to end fighting between two rival governments and their armed supporters who pushed Libya close to collapse, four years after the death of Muammar Gaddafi.

On September 21 in Morocco, Leon told reporters he hoped the factions would now return to reach a final agreement after the celebrations of Eid Al Adha this week and before October 20, when the mandate of the elected Parliament end.

“We finished our work, we have a text that is a final text. So our role in the process is now complete, “Leon said flanked by Western diplomats in the Moroccan city of Skhirat, where much of the recent negotiation took place.
