2017 Must Be A Year Of Decisions For Chaotic Libya, UN Says

The UN envoy for Libya says 2017 must be “a year of decisions” for the politically fractured North African nation — first and foremost to get parliament’s approval of the national unity government and form a strong army and national police force.

Martin Kobler told the UN Security Council on Wednesday that decisions also have to be made on how best to use revenue from Libya’s oil production, which has increased to over 700 000 barrels a day, as well as gas exports to end the country’s “dire humanitarian situation” and help all Libyans.

The country remains divided between east and west, with no effective government and rival factions and militias.
