The UN Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1970 (2011) concerning Libya met on November 04 in informal consultations to hear a presentation by the Panel of Experts on Libya on its work programme under the mandate extended by resolution 2644.

The UN Security Council's website said in a statement that the Panel presented five areas of focus: armed groups, with a focus on human trafficking and other types of transnational criminal activities, and their capacity to impact the Libyan political process; international humanitarian law and human rights violations; the arms embargo, including reporting on incidents of non-compliance by land, air and sea; any attempts at illicit exports of crude oil and refined petroleum products as well as gathering information and reporting cases of fuel smuggling and other illicit activities; and the assets freeze, including continued monitoring of its proper implementation.

The presentation was followed by a discussion between Committee members and the Panel. Committee members welcomed the work program of the Panel and expressed their support to the Panel.
