Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Libya, Stephanie Williams, called for Eid Al-Adha to be an opportunity to overcome issues between Libyans and end fighting.

Williams expressed her hope that the language of love, tolerance and unity will prevail among the Libyan people, according to a message of congratulations released on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha.

On Monday, Williams announced "the completion of the necessary measures to initiate the international financial audit of the Central Bank of Libya branches" in Tripoli and Al-Bayda.

Williams said that this process is "the culmination of a process laudably commenced by GNA Prime Minister Sarraj on July 10, 2018 in a letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in which he requested the United Nations to facilitate an international audit of the Central Bank branches." The statement added that on September 13, 2018, the United Nations Security Council, in its resolution No. 2434, mandated the United Nations Support Mission in Libya to "facilitate the procedures for starting the required financial review process."
