The German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has confirmed that the International Berlin Follow-up Commission on Libya agrees that the UN Security Council resolution on Libya is binding to all parties.

Maas added in a press conference on Sunday that the international community should talk about the violations of the arms embargo, urging the Libyan conflict parties to commit to the UN Security Council resolutions.

"We are monitoring the channels through which the arms arrive in Libya. We will support any resolution that backs up the role of the European Union in ensuring the implementation of the arms embargo in Libya." Maas added.

The remarks came following the first meeting for the follow-up commission in Munich with participations by Russia, Turkey, France and Italy; among others.

In last Wednesday, the Security Council adopted a resolution that calls for ceasefire in Libya and endorsed Berlin conference conclusions. 14 countries out of 15 yes-voted it while Russia abstained.
