London, 17 December 2020:
UNSMIL yesterday congratulated the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Libya for its decision taken to unify the exchange rate at yesterday’s ”long-awaited” meeting.
UNSMIL said the decision was ‘‘an important and much needed step towards alleviating the suffering of the Libyan people and a good sign that this vital sovereign institution is moving towards unification’’.
UNSMIL head Stephanie Williams stressed that “Now is the moment for all Libyans — particularly the country’s political actors — to demonstrate similar courage, determination and leadership to put aside their personal interests and overcome their differences for the sake of the Libyan people in order to restore the country’s sovereignty and the democratic legitimacy of its institutions.”
