Welcoming the agreement of the Libyan Political Dialogue Council, the UN Security Council called for the formation of a new inclusive government and preparations for the presidential and parliamentary elections.

UN-sponsored talks reportedly produced a new interim government for Libya on Friday aimed at resolving a decade of chaos, division and violence by holding national elections later this year.

"The Security Council calls on the interim executive authority to agree swiftly on the formation of a new, inclusive government, as set out in the roadmap agreed by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in Tunis, and to make the necessary preparations ahead of national presidential and parliamentary elections planned for Dec. 24, 2021.

The Security Council further calls on the interim executive authority to improve services and launch a comprehensive national reconciliation process," said the statement.

The Security Council called for "full compliance" with the arms embargo by all member states, in line with the relevant Security Council resolutions, according to the statement.
