Libya’s unity government has received Western support against arms embargo.
The country which has been facing UN arms embargo since the revolt against the regime of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 has got support from world powers including the United States.
Once the arms embargo is lifted, the country will be able purchase arms to improve the country’s security that is being threatened by Islamic State insurgents.
On Monday 16th May 2016, Western and regional ministers met for discussion on providing support to the embattled Libya’s newly formed unity government in Vienna.
On its part Libya expressed readiness to meet the demands of the new government’s mandate to arm it forces to fight against terrorism which already has set foothold in the country.
After the talks, a final communiqué put together by internal community present agreed to fully support the efforts of the Libyan new administration and will request the lifting of arms embargo so as to give the Libyan government another chance to train and equip presidential guards and the country’s authorized forces.
The communiqué was signed by twenty-five regional delegations present including the United States, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, Egypt, Tunisia, France, the UK, Germany and Italy.
