Regarding the second question, I had a meeting this morning, as I said, with the Mufti. I briefed him on the dialogue and he didn’t tell me anything, of any alleged cooperation with anyone. So I’m sorry to tell you that I didn’t hear anything about it. It is the first time I hear such possibility. As I said the purpose of the meeting to brief him on this dialogue, how things are going, what are our views on the general situation in the country, and we explained our initiative and this was all, this was the meeting this morning.
QUESTION: The HoR has acknowledged Dignity Operation of Hatar despite the fact that he has admitted committing massacres in Chad and he has violated the legitimacy of Tobruk and because of him the dialogue has been suspended, are there any procedures, actions that have been by the UN in this regard? Second question, why don’t you communicate with Omar LA hassi who is influeincing over 70 percent of the Libyans and in charge of the government of salvation.
LEON: First of all, let me reiterate what I said before, my information is that no statement officially coming from members of the HoR in a voting session has been agreed on this issue. This is the information I have. I may be wrong, but this what I heard yesterday in Tobruk when I posed the question.
Regarding any information has to do with sanctions and with any procedure this is, as I said before, this is something, and I am talking in general, and not about any specific case. In general, the UN bodies in charge of this question are working. They work very confidentially. So I don’t have any information on any concrete case. I know they are following the situation in the country, not only in the recent weeks but also in previous months. They are taking this work very seriously, addressing situations, as I said before, that has to do with the armed groups but also with the political process. But since this is an extremely confidential process. I don’t have any information regarding any specific case.
Regarding your last question, I have said many times that the United Nations does not recognize governments. This is not something the United Nations has to do or not to do. It is the member states, all the members of the international community that decide which governments they recognize and that they don’t recognize. To the best of my knowledge, there is no any member of the United Nations that has recognized the government you mentioned. My understanding is that all the members of the international community recognize the legitimacy of the HoR.
Of course, they insist that this principle of legitimacy has to be completed with the principle of inclusion. And this is why the international community is supporting very strongly this political process, the Ghadames process, hoping to see results soon. But the situation at the moment is that there are no changes, no news in this recognition you mentioned and this is a very important reference for anyone working in the United Nations.
