Following the latest of rival military leaders in Sirte, Libya, the head of the UN Mission in the country has called upon the national authorities to recommit to fully supporting the implementation of Libya’s 2020 ceasefire agreement. SRSG Abdoulaye Bathily called upon the government to allocate appropriate resources and stepping up political efforts to end the stalemate and reestablish legitimacy to Libyan institutions through elections. During the meeting, the JMC discussed plans to engage armed groups with the view to create a conducive environment for a sustainable peace and security in Libya, among other matters.
Father, let Your peace rule over this nation; cause the authorities to fully agree and execute the ceasefire agreement. We pray that you strengthen the Christians in this nation to continue to pray for those in leadership, in Jesus Christ name (Proverbs 29:14, 1 Timothy 2:2).
