To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the resignation of Ghassan Salamé, the UN Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, and of the impact of that resignation on the prospects for a ceasefire in Libya.

The UK was saddened to hear that the UN Special Representative for Libya, Ghassan Salamé, resigned for health reasons. We thank him for his tireless efforts to bring peace and stability to Libya. The UK continues to support the UN's work to secure a lasting ceasefire and facilitate a Libyan-led and Libyan-owned political process, as set out in UN Security Council Resolution 2510, drafted by the UK. We will continue to work closely with UNSMIL following Salamé's departure to maintain the momentum of political and military talks. We look forward to working with his successor, once appointed.
