Permanent Mission of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations


Rafael Ramírez Venezuela is committed to Libyan political agreement for a permanent solution to the conflict


New York 23 December 2015.- This Wednesday the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a Resolution supporting the application of the agreement signed on 17th December this year in Morocco, seeking a definitive solution to the armed conflict in Libya.
Rafael Ramírez, Permanent Representative of Venezuela to the United Nations, expressed the need for a peaceful solution to the situation in Libya, as the 2011 military intervention in the country has occasioned negative consequences in all spheres. 
“The National Unity Government formed in Libya must take all necessary measures, with the support of the international community, to end the illicit trafficking in weapons that terrorist groups and armed non-state actors operating in Libya and the African continent receive and which feed the conflicts in Iraq and Syria” he affirmed.
In this forum, Ramírez urged the new Libyan authorities to collaborate with the International Criminal Court and surrender Saif Al Islam Gaddafi, in order to guarantee a trial in compliance with law.
