UN threatens sanctions for blocking Libya peace deal

The UN Security Council has said that it is prepared to impose sanctions on people and entities who threaten Libya’s peace, stability, and security, or who undermine the successful completion of its political transition.

On 9 October, the Security Council praised those involved in a political dialogue in Libya that a day earlier resulted in the presentation of the Political Agreement for the Government of National Accord.  The Council has now reiterated its call for all Libyan parties to endorse and sign the agreement, and work towards the formation of such a government.

The Security Council’s press release is here.
