II. Libya    ddddddddddddddd

Libya, taking into account the findings of a recent UN mission, which observed that in early 2019 the advance of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar and his Libyan National Army (LNA) towards Tripoli has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of soldiers and multiple civilians as well as causing thousands of injuries through airstrikes and ground forces, calls upon member states to increase diplomatic efforts with the LNA in an effort to defend the citizens of Tripoli and the GNA from Haftar’s advance. Additionally, the delegation of Libya urges the UN to partner with local NGOs such as the Libyan Red Crescent so that they can more effectively deliver medicine and vital treatment to and evacuate citizens from the conflict zones of Libya. Deeply concerned by a 2018 report by the Panel of Experts of the International Sanctions Committee on Libya, which found evidence that Jordan, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Sudan have not abided by the United Nation sanctions on Libya to ban military support to the parties involved in the Libyan conflict, specifically noting that 1,000 Sudanese Rapid Support Forces, as well as arms, were transported into Eastern Libya and the LNA in July of 2019, Libya recommends that the UN lift the Libyan arms embargo off of the Government of National Accord (GNA) of Libya. This embargo only serves to hurt the good and law-abiding people of the GNA because the LNA and the General National Congress (GNC) refuse to cooperate and receive support through illegal means regardless of legislation or international law. To once more build off of these offenses, Libya encourages the United States, the European Union, and other world powers to use their influence to stop international support by their apparent allies for the violent and volatile militia known as the LNA and to stop tolerating this blatant condonation of the LNA by their trade partners such as the United Arab Emirates.
