UN Mission to Remain in Libya for Delivering Humanitarian Aid
UN Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya Maria Ribeiro said during a press briefing that the United Nations will remain in Libya to provide humanitarian assistance necessary to address the needs of the people affected by the conflict in the country.
"We have through the many partners that we have here, we will continue to remain and to attempt to do everything we can to deliver the humanitarian responses that are appropriate in these circumstances", Ribeiro said.
She added that there has been a concern over the lack of humanitarian access into Tripoli.
Since the killing of Libya's long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi by US-supported Islamists in 2011, Libya has been ruled by two competing governments — its western part governed by the UN-backed GNA and its eastern part controlled by the LNA.
