Security Council adopts resolution for ceasefire in Libya, backs Berlin conclusions

The UN Security Council adopted Wednesday a resolution that calls for a permanent ceasefire in Libya and supports the conclusions of Berlin conference.

The resolution, which was drafted by the UK, was passed 14 votes out of 15 as Russia abstained from voting for it.

The US representative at the Security Council said in a statement following the resolution that the foreign fighters and mercenaries should withdraw from Libya, adding that the US was disappointed that the resolution wasn’t adopted unanimously.

The German representative said the adoption of the Berlin conference conclusions was a vital step toward peace in Libya, stressing the need for all parties involved in Berlin conference to commit to its outcomes.

Meanwhile, the Russian representative reiterated that Libyans are the only ones who should make decisions about the fate of their country.
