Quotes

"If they trusted each other, [the election process] should not have gone this far. You remember, Secretary Kerry went twice to Kabul to broker this deal, and that did not work and, eventually, the deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations intervened, and the permanent representative there, and the U S ambassador there, Ambassador Cunningham. Who ends up in the so-called unity government is still a puzzle. How are they going to be named, and who will name them, and how will they divvy up so-called key ministries and less important ministries? All of these are issues that could cause a great deal of concern" continued Shahrani
"Action must be taken immediately to prevent such a disaster. Everyone must do what they can" he declared
"As a prerequisite, all Libyans must comply with… its call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire" the statement said, unveiling plans to create a joint committee by the Libyans and UNSMIL to supervise the ceasefire
"I feel shocked with leaders who engage in conflicts & completely ignore the suffering of their people" - @Refugees chief Guterres #2030NOW
