The UK has been at the forefront of efforts to encourage key Libyan and international stakeholders to engage productively in an inclusive political process, led by the United Nations. The Security Council has recently adopted the UK's draft resolution for the UN Support Mission in Libya's mandate renewal; ensuring the legal basis for the continuation of the UN's work, vital to the stability and security of Libya. The UK, in coordination with Security Council members, has also led the sanctioning of human traffickers and militia leaders and has recently supported the listing of Ibrahim Jadhran, who was responsible for attacking Libya's Oil Crescent.

The UK, alongside other UN Security Council members, will continue to hold to account actors who engage in activities intended to undermine Libya's security and stability.
