The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has hailed the "key achievements" of the UN Rep. Stephanie Williams as she ends her assignment as his Special Adviser on Libya.

"He is thankful for her service to the organization and her dedication in pursuit of a solution to the political crisis in Libya," the UN head spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, told reports on Monday.

The UN official highlighted her work during her time in Libya, including her contributions to the signing of a nation-wide ceasefire agreement in October 2020, the adoption of the political road map by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in November of that year, and the consensus achieved in the Joint Committee of the House of Representatives and the High State Council on a constitutional framework for elections, as he put it.

He said the Secretary-General reiterates the UN's commitment to support a Libyan-led and owned process to address outstanding challenges and ensure the holding of presidential and parliamentary elections as soon as possible.
