UN envoy warns against continuous influx of weapons to Libya

continuous influx of weapons to Libya
Head of UN Support Mission in Libya Ghassan Salame on Wednesday confirmed that weapons continue to enter Libya in the absence of a unified Libyan authority protecting the borders.

Salame, also the special representative of the UN secretary-general, made his remarks following an expanded meeting with representatives of political and security elites of southern Libya to discuss problems facing their cities, especially border security.

"The continued illegal flow of weapons into the country should be dealt with firmly," Salame told a news conference in Tripoli, adding that the borders are "not monitored and there is no unified Libyan authority to protect it effectively."

"The United Nations is working intensively and is in contact with many countries to prevent the entry of weapons to Libya," Salame said.

The UN envoy did not reveal the countries with which the UN is communicating to stop the export of arms to Libya.
