The JMC said in a statement on Friday that it met at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in Geneva from 6 to 8 October, with the support of of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), and in the presence of the UN envoy to Libya, Jan Kubis, in order to complete the tasks of the committee regarding the implementation of the terms and provisions of the ceasefire agreement.
It emphasized the agenda relating to the exit of all mercenaries, foreign fighters and foreign forces from Libyan lands by land, air and sea, stressing the need to prepare the Libyan monitoring mechanism for the ceasefire agreement, particularly the presence of the UN international observers in Libya prior to the onset of the plan.
According to the statement, the meetings were distinguished by a “national spirit of responsibility”, while the JMC discussed mechanisms for implementing the plan to remove all mercenaries, foreign fighters and foreign forces from Libyan territory.
