Libya / United Nations – Adoption of Security Council Resolution 2259 (New York - December 23, 2015)

France welcomes the UN Security Council's unanimous adoption of Resolution 2259 on Libya.

It marks the international community's support for the inter-Libyan political agreement signed on December 17 in Skhirat and for the national unity government that Prime Minister Designate Fayez al-Sarraj is about to form.

We call on the United Nations and all regional and international stakeholders to offer their support to the future government.

We were saddened to learn of the fire that broke out during the night of December 23-24 at Jazan General Hospital, killing more than 25 and leaving many injured, according to the latest figures.

In this difficult moment, France offers its condolences to the victims' families and assures Saudi Arabia of its solidarity.
