National accord only way to solve Libyan crisis: Qatar

Jul 09, 2020 - 16:22

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Qatar says the only way to solve the Libyan crisis is to support the Government of National Accord.

Qatari Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani attended a video conference of the United Nations Security Council om Wednesday.

The Foreign Minister said that more than a year ago, the Libyan capital, Tripoli, was the scene of unlawful militia attacks, which targeted innocent Libyan civilians.

He added the internationally recognized legitimate government, and committed serious violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, including attacks on healthinfo-icon care facilities.

“Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, a missile strike targeted a hospital equipped to treat COVID-19 patients in Tripoli.”

The deputy PM said landmines resulted in dozens of Libyan victims, not to mention the continued systematic extrajudicial killings, pointing out that the international community also recently witnessed mass graves in areas that were controlled by illegal militias.

He said that the State of Qatar reiterated its condemnation of these dangerous and illegal practices and warned against supporting a certain party against another.

He added that it has become clear that the only way to solve the Libyan crisis is to support the Government of National Accord and commit to implementing the Skhirat agreement, Security Council resolutions, and the results of the Berlin conference.

Al-Thani pointed out that the UN Security Council unanimously approved the Skhirat Agreement, which recognized the Government of National Accord as the only legitimate executive authority in Libya.

"Unfortunately, some countries initially supported this agreement, but they did not respect it later after they supported and enabled opposing factions against the government. This is how we got to where we are now," he said.
