Apr 29, 2022 | International actors

On 29 April, the UN Security Council (UNSC) extended the mandate of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) until 31 July 2022. The UK, the UNSC’s current pen holder, submitted a draft text for the UNSMIL mandate to be extended for a year. However, following Russian pushback, the UNSC accepted a technical renewal of the mandate for three months.
