Williams: Withdrawal of mercenaries from Libya shouldn’t be a condition for holding elections

Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Libya, Stephanie Williams, confirmed that the presence of mercenaries in Libya has caused many political, social, security and military crises, noting that removing them is important, but it should not be a condition for holding the elections.

In an interview with the Egyptian Al-Dustour website, Williams indicated that a number of UN member states had hinted at imposing sanctions on anyone who obstructs the holding of elections, pointing out that the Security Council had previously stressed the need to sanction those obstructing the political process in Libya.

It renewed its call for the necessity of respecting the demands of more than 2.8 million Libyans for holding elections, stopping the war, electing a new president and parliament, restoring security and stability and unifying institutions.

It is noteworthy that exclusive sources confirmed to 218News that Williams had left the Egyptian capital, heading to Moscow as part of a foreign tour that includes the countries involved in the Libyan file.
