UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged participants of the Berlin conference on Libya to support a humanitarian response plan requesting 189 million dollars for the most vulnerable residents of the North African country.
Guterres made the plea on Wednesday at the conference.
“I urge the interim executive authority to provide support, including financial resources, to the High National Electoral Commission.
“I urge Member States to support the humanitarian response plan requesting 189 million dollars to support the most vulnerable, which is just 21 per cent funded.”
The UN chief also called on the Libyan government to “urgently take all necessary measures to protect detainees from violence and ensure accountability for perpetrators of human rights violations.”
