The UN Security Council on Friday extended its mission in Libya for another year by passing a resolution.

Iran PressAmerica: In the resolution, the UN Security Council reaffirmed its strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Libya. 

The resolution, which was adopted by the UN Security Council, also addresses the issue of Libyan refugees and asylum seekers.

Libya has been embroiled in violence and political instability since the 2011 revolution, which led to the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Libya is currently divided between two centers of power. One of them is the Tripoli-based government headed by Faiz al-Siraj, which is recognized by the United Nations. And another government based in the eastern Libyan city of Tobruk, backed by the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and several European countries.
