LIBYA. Meeting from 2 to 4 November 2020 in Ghadames (western Libya) for a joint military commission, the various Libyan parties made progress on preparing for the future of Libya after the civil war.

Conducted under the aegis of the UN, the discussions focused mainly on the modalities of implementation of the ceasefire signed Friday, October 23, 2020 in Geneva. "We can see the benefits, the fruits of the work of the Joint Military Commission on the ground here in Libya," said Stephanie Williams, Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Libya. Also leading the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (Manul), she welcomed, in a statement issued on Wednesday 4 November 2020, the "continued exchange of detainees since the signing of the ceasefire agreement".

This fourth round of negotiations begun in February 2020 has shown that all oil installations are functioning, as is oil production. According to the National Oil Corporation (NOC), daily production has reached 800,000 barrels/day. "We are working to resume flights to allow people in the south to have a connection with other cities in Libya," says Stephanie Williams.

The next meeting will take place on 9 November 2020 in Tunis and will consist of political talks within the framework of the Inter-Libyan Political Dialogue Forum. "We will have to work with the seventy-five participants (of the Forum) on a forward-looking political roadmap with the programming of national elections as a key objective", comments Stephanie Williams. What we are asking is that the (Libyan) political class reach the level of responsibility we have seen in the Joint Military Commission (...) We know there are games being played now, we see the manoeuvres all around us of what we call the 'status quo' party. It won't work."
