United Nations Security Council on Saturday expressed concern over Libya’s ongoing political, security and institutional crises and the rising threat of terrorism, said a press statement of the council.

Expressing “concern about the ongoing fighting, destruction and growing humanitarian toll in various parts of the country,” the council called for an immediate end of violence, said the statement.

The situation in the North African country continued to deteriorate in recent months amid significant political fragmentation and violence.

The council stressed that the Political Agreement for the Government of National Accord finalized by the Libyan parties in October offers a real prospect for resolving the situation, and “urged all Libyan dialogue participants to endorse and sign the Political Agreement for the Government of National Accord,” it said.

The council also “called on all Libyan stakeholders to work swiftly towards the formation of a Government of National Accord which will work for the benefit of all Libyans,” it said.

The members of the Security Council encouraged the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to advance relevant efforts for co-ordination of international assistance to the future Government of National Accord, it said.

The 15-member body also reaffirmed their strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Libya, it said.
