The permanent delegation of Libya to the United Nations participated in the open debate called for by the Republic of Albania on Tuesday, in its capacity as the President of the Security Council for the current month, on the "Working methods of the Security Council".

Libya's delegate to the United Nations, Ambassador Taher Al-Sunni, addressed in his speech the need to improve the Security Council's working methods, especially for member states under Chapter7.

He indicated that affected states should be consulted and able to provide inputs officially on draft resolutions, presidential statements, the sanction committee, and the panel of expert reports.

"Members states under sanctions should be notified officially when exemption requests are submitted to SC by other members," Al-Sunni said.

He also demanded that stakeholders with the UN missions should be first consulted by the Security General on the Special Representatives of the SG nominations, once consensus is reached before the SC is informed.
