Ladies and Gentlemen of the press,
I welcome the signing of a ceasefire agreement by the Libyan parties in Geneva today under the auspices of the United Nations.
This is a fundamental step toward peace and stability in Libya.
I congratulate the parties for putting the interest of their nation ahead of their differences.
I thank my [Acting] Special Representative for Libya and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Ms. Stephanie Williams, who accompanied the Libyan parties in this effort.
Now, too many people have suffered for too long.
