Libya’s National Oil Corporation : work has to continue without unimpeded
Libya - Remarks to the press by Mr. François Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations - 16 July 2018
Just three messages on Libya:
1/ We as France have welcomed the announcement that Libya’s National Oil Corporation is resuming its work on behalf of all Libyans. This is a very important and positive development and we want to insist that we expect the NOC to continue its work unimpeded.
2/ There is only one game in town and this is the roadmap we all collectively agreed on in Paris at the end of May at the conference hosted by President Macron under the auspices of the UN ; and this roadmap to the elections has clearly been endorsed by the Security Council in its last Presidential Statement on the topic. The Council is united in this regard and this is a very important message that all stakeholders must have in mind.
3/ And finally, let me emphasize that Ghassan Salamé’s role is more than ever front and center. He has the full and total support of the whole Security Council and we are two hundred percent behind him in his efforts to implement the roadmap we all agreed on and I was referring to.
