6. The International Ministerial Conference on Support to Libya builds on the Senior Officials meeting held in London on 17 December, at which the Libyan Government had outlined a comprehensive plan of action in the priority areas of security sector, justice and rule of law. The Libyan Government today presented its international partners with its priorities for the development and reform of the security, rule of law and justice sectors. Libya’s international partners have stressed the significance of these priorities and pledged additional assistance in support of Libyan efforts in these sectors.
7. In giving effect to these priorities outlined by the Libyan Government and its vision to deliver concrete benefits to the Libyan people and further Libya’s democratic transition and the rebuilding of a modern state, the international partners committed themselves to realign their assistance in order to advance those priorities. In doing so, international partners reminded the Libyan Government of the need to adopt the policy decisions and put in place the mechanisms necessary for allowing the support of the international partners, in order to translate its priorities into tangible achievements. In pursuing these objectives, Conference participants recognised the need for the Libyan Government to continue to consult with the Libyan people, through their representative bodies, civil society and other mechanisms.
8. Mindful of the relevant Security Council resolutions pertaining to the role of the United Nations in coordinating international assistance to Libya, Conference participants agreed that further work would be needed to refine and operationalize the outcomes of today’s International Ministerial Conference on Support to Libya. They agreed that this should take place within a group of Libya’s Core Security Partners, which will meet periodically in Tripoli with Libyan officials in order to measure progress and review overall security sector efforts.
9. The Libyan Government has identified six priority areas in the security sector, including: i) national security coordination and architecture; ii) disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR); iii) arms and ammunition control; iv) border security and management; v) defence reform and development; and vi) police reform and development.
