Leon Meets with Libyan Dialogue Participants; To Resume Dialogue Sessions in Morocco 19 March 2015

Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya and the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Bernardino Leon, held on Friday 13 March 2015 meetings with participants to the Libyan political dialogue.


Substantive and procedural issues on the way forward were discussed. In order to allow more time for consultations, UNSMIL has proposed to resume the dialogue sessions on Thursday 19 March 2015 in Morocco.

At the same time, work will continue on the draft documents that were presented in the earlier discussions.

The participants renewed their commitment to the dialogue as the sole mechanism for the resolution of political differences and the need to work quickly to reach agreement to draw Libya out of its crisis and bring peace and stability.

The Mission looks forward to active engagement by all participants during the upcoming sessions, and urges them to seize the momentum generated by the 5-7 March round of political dialogue in Morocco, build on the progress made and not to waste the opportunity the talks provide to bring peace to their country.

UNSMIL and the participants emphasise the importance of other tracks in support of the main dialogue track. The progress made on these tracks serves to boost the overall efforts towards a political solution. These tracks include meetings of representatives of political parties and political activists, representatives of municipalities as well as armed groups and tribal and societal personalities.

The Mission and participants express deep gratitude to the Moroccan authorities for their generous support and for hosting the Libyan political dialogue.
