A statement issued by the February 17 movement in the Libyan city of Misrata expressed its dissatisfaction with the statements of Stephanie Khoury, Deputy Head of the UN Security Mission, describing them as “does not meet the hopes placed on resolving the Libyan crisis.”

The statement explained that Khoury did not present a clear road map to resolve the current political impasse and did not identify the parties obstructing the political process over the past years.

The statement stated that political and institutional divisions weakened Libyans’ hopes of establishing an effective government that would extend its authority to all parts of the country and unify state institutions.

The movement condemned the way in which the UN mission dealt with vital issues such as the continued flow of weapons to Libya, despite the presence of a ban from the Security Council.

The movement stressed the importance of the international community’s effective support for the main Libyan parties, including the Presidential Council, the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Council of State, in addition to other political parties and forces.

The statement also warned that the continuation of the current situation would lead to popular movements demanding an end to the suffering and overcoming the political impasse.

In her briefing to the Security Council, Stefanie Khoury stressed the importance of working on political, economic, and security tracks, as well as human rights. She stressed the importance of respecting the results of the upcoming elections and government change, noting the necessity of unifying the national budget and strengthening the national reconciliation process.

Khoury did not present to the Security Council any concrete steps to break the political deadlock in Libya, nor did she present a clear agenda or detailed plan for her future wor
